It gets better . . .
The recent suicide of Rutgers teen Tyler Clementi drew national attention to the issue. Clementi threw himself off the George Washington Bridge after his college roommate allegedly broadcast online his romantic encounter with a man.
Writer and gay activist Dan Savage spearheaded a project called “It Gets Better.”
It is a video project which features adults and teens telling bullied kids that their lives will improve. Below is Tim Gunn’s clip. He urges teens who need intervention to contact the Trevor Project, a hotline for gay teens contemplating suicide.
