Dan Savage: It gets better

I stumbled upon a very empowering video today, and I feel the need to share it. Nothing to say that it doesn’t say on its own, except that I wish someone had said this to me when I needed to hear it most. I hope this encourages you, even if you are hearing it years later than you had hoped to:

  1. Devon this is wonderful and what I needed to hear. I had this but I want to share with you this.

    Here is my story. I am on gaydar. I am fat. About three months ago I started a diet on protein etc and an exercise programe. I didn’t bother with kilo loss just getting healthy. I have lost 15 cms off my waist. But I am told I am a fat whale by OTHER GAY MEN!

    Now, these guys in this video are right – especially at 1.31 it does get better but to me sometimes it is not them – the religious, the judgemental fat haters, the racists – but sometimes it is the voices in one’s head that admonise the self.

    These guys are wonderful thanks for sharing.

  2. School should not be torture; no one should have to endure abuse to get an education. That said Terry and Dan’s message is very powerful. Because of what has happended to so many of us I support GLSEN and encourage others to do so as well. http://www.glsen.org The Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network strives to assure that each member of every school community is valued and respected regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression.
