It Gets Better Releases Iguana Pin Following Dan Levy's SNL Skit

Kate McKinnon

Inspired by the comedy sketch, the pin will help LGBTQ+ youth.

Kate McKinnon may be terrorized by a pet iguana -- but now a likeness of that lizard is helping LGBTQ+ youth.

An iguana pin inspired by the recent skit on Saturday Night Live spoofing It Gets Better is raising funds for the organization.

In the segment, host Dan Levy and queer cast members McKinnon, Bowen Yang, and Punkie Johnson talk about some issues that do not necessarily get better as one gets older. Among them are income taxes, online bullying from gay Twitter, and an iguana that rums amok around the house.

"Here at the It Gets Better Project, we're here to support you on every step of your identity journey -- unless it involves purchasing a live iguana, we have no idea how to help," reads the pin's description.

All of the proceeds from the limited-edition enamel pin, designed by Moriah Benton, will benefit It Gets Better's mission to empower and inspire LGBTQ+ young people through storytelling. The organization was founded a decade ago by gay journalist Dan Savage, and its videos sparked a movement of ordinary folks and celebrities sharing stories of hope through social media.
