On September 21, 2010, Dan Savage and his partner, Terry, posted a message on YouTube for LGBT teens everywhere facing harassment. The message was simple: "It gets better. However bad it is now, it gets better." The video was just a small response to a series of bully-induced suicides by LGBT youth. Dan wanted to reassure LGBT teens everywhere that life does, in fact, get better, and more often than not, life can get great.
Since then, The It Gets Better Project has turned into a worldwide movement, inspiring politicians, celebrities, organizations, activists, and personalities alike to submit their own story. From President Barack Obama to funny girl Sarah Silverman, everyone has put out their own message of hope.
Now, it's MTV's turn to add to the movement with the It Gets Better special, a reminder to teens across the country that it will get better, and we're standing right by them until it does.
