Much has been said recently about Dan Savage's "It Gets Better Project." I think it's fantastic that he is reaching out to young gay people in such a true, heartfelt, passionate way. Also circulating the internet is this video of a City Council Member spilling his guts out that could make just about anyone cry.
"It gets better." It's a brilliant message.
And if I may, I'd like to pass the message on to all the awkward Atheist, First-Generation American, oddly dressed, non-conformist young girls out there. And I totally don't mean that as an insult to the movement. I SO IDENTIFY with the whole Gay Movement simply because I know what it is to be different, and there's nothing you can do about it, and people don't seem to want (or ever want) to accept you.
I think a lot of folks have felt like that at some point in their life.
And what if they all thought back on that. And what if they vowed to never cause anyone else to feel like that.
Wouldn't the world be a better place?
Bang on, my peeps!
