February 20, 2012 1 Comment
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past year and a half, you have no doubt heard of the “It gets Better” campaign.
Started by advice columnist Dan Savage and his husband, Terry Miller, in 2010 as a response to a rash of suicides within the LGBTQIA community, more than 40,000 people have contributed to the project, including Idaho’s only openly gay state lawmaker, State Senator Nicole Lefavour:
The MTV special will highlight the stories of three teens for whom it has indeed, “got better.”
David Wiegand over at the San Fransisco Chronicle ,”A single film about three young people won’t, by itself, make a universal happy ending for every troubled LGBT kid in the United States. But it’s doing its job if it reaches just one of them.”
Watch it Tuesday night at 10:00 pm MT on MTV.
