Hello Elliot - First of all…
Hello Elliot -

First of all, thanks to you and everybody at IGB for doing what you're doing.

As far as my involvement, I taught English in South Korea last year. I met two young gay men there who both told me they had seriously considered killing themselves. This isn't just a "pet project" for me - this matters. When President Obama announced his support for marriage equality, it occurred to me that world news coverage of that moment may have been the first time for a lot of people around the world to hear from an ally. I'm so glad that IGB is going to work on changing that. (I wrote about these issues for a GLBTQ news site in my home state of Maine, which you can find here: http://www.shiftmaine.com/news/2012/05/global-perspective-on-president-obamas-marriage-support )

Anyway, again, so glad to help out. 40% of my goal in two days!

All best,

-Steve

Hello Elliot, Thank you ver…
Hello Elliot,

Thank you very much for the warm welcome.

Being an outspoken bisexual gamer myself I am planning to use this opportunity to raise awareness within the gaming community. I will soon be holding a 'stream-a-thon' on twitch.tv/luciouslisa to raise money while at the same time hopefully educating my viewers on the issues the LGBT community worldwide runs into.

I hope to raise a lot of money for this excellent cause. Thank you for making this available.

Hope for LGBT Youth

The It Gets Better Project's mission is to communicate to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth around the world that it gets better, and to create and inspire the changes needed to make it better for them.

Growing up isn’t easy. Many young people face daily tormenting and bullying, leading them to feel like they have nowhere to turn. This is especially true for LGBT kids and teens, who often hide their sexuality for fear of bullying. Without other openly gay adults and mentors in their lives, they can't imagine what their future may hold. In many instances, gay and lesbian adolescents are taunted — even tortured — simply for being themselves.

 

While many of these teens couldn’t see a positive future for themselves, we can. The It Gets Better Project was created to show young LGBT people the levels of happiness, potential, and positivity their lives will reach – if they can just get through their teen years. The It Gets Better Project wants to remind teenagers in the LGBT community that they are not alone — and it WILL get better.
