LGBT Pride Month: It Gets Better

It certainly does get better, as New York became the largest state to recognize same-sex marriage on June 24th, 2011. What’s a better way to celebrate the closing of LGBT pride month?

I can’t think of a better celebration, but I wanted to highlight the It Gets Better Project. Watching Rise Against’s ‘Make it Stop’ video, I couldn’t help notice the goose bumps that came across my arm as I watched their message about LGBT youth, bullying in schools and the suicides that have taken place. Rise Against and many others (including our client Dell, whose LGBT employee resource group promoted their entry for the project) are sharing loud and clear that it gets better.

Too many suicides have taken place in the LGBT youth community and watching the videos have inspired to share this amazing project.

You can support the It Gets Better Project at YourCause.com by visiting here.

Cheers to progressing times,
