Living Social, the company offering discount deals on goods, services, and entertainment around the world, is offering some encouragement to LGBT youths with an It Gets Better video.

In the video, several employees recall difficulties they encountered growing up. One recalls not wanting to return to school when he was in sixth grade and being afraid to tell his parents that he was being bullied for being gay. "I was so afraid to tell them what the kids were calling me," he says. But they stress that life improved for them as adults, and they encourage LGBT kids and their allies to stand up to harassment. "Come out as an ally every day and make it better," one woman says.

Watch the video here, and find more new videos from a variety of individuals at the It Gets Better Project website.

Trudy Ring is The Advocate’s senior politics editor and copy chief. She has been a reporter and editor for daily newspapers and LGBTQ+ weeklies/monthlies, trade magazines, and reference books. She is a political junkie who thinks even the wonkiest details are fascinating, and she always loves to see political candidates who are groundbreaking in some way. She enjoys writing about other topics as well, including religion (she’s interested in what people believe and why), literature, theater, and film. Trudy is a proud “old movie weirdo” and loves the Hollywood films of the 1930s and ’40s above all others. Other interests include classic rock music (Bruce Springsteen rules!) and history. Oh, and she was a Jeopardy! contestant back in 1998 and won two games. Not up there with Amy Schneider, but Trudy still takes pride in this achievement.
