Yes, It Gets Better - but Get Help Today!

Trevor Project

Growing up is hard for everyone. However, young people who are gay, who think they might be gay or who are perceived to be gay often have a particularly difficult time. In the past several months, at least nine young men have killed themselves after being bullied about their perceived sexual orientation.

Columnist Dan Savage recently started the It Gets Better Project to build a collection of online personal stories that encourage young people to stick it out. Yes, growing up can be very rough but it does get better. Visit the website at http://www.itgetsbetterproject.com/.

I'd like to take Dan's campaign one step further and connect kids in trouble with people who can help them today. Yes, it DOES get better - but you don't have to wait. If you are a youth who is feeling alone, confused or in crisis, please call The Trevor Lifeline at 1-866-4-U-TREVOR for immediate help. The phone line is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

For more information about The Trevor Project, to donate to this worthy cause, or to get help now, please visit http://www.thetrevorproject.org/ today.

Broadway Sings for the Trevor Project - "It Gets Better"
