Show Summary

It Gets Better is the YouTube channel created by sex columnist Dan Savage, to provide a venue for gay, bisexual, and transgender adults to reach out to LGBT youth who have trouble dealing with their sexuality. Dan is an author, media pundit, journalist and newspaper editor who writes an internationally syndicated sex and relationship advice column called Savage Love. The column is straightforward, non-judgmental, and often humorous, but now Savage is creating a more serious outlet. After the suicide death of a 15 year-old gay teen in a small town occurred after years of bullying, Savage decided to launch It Gets Better, to provide videos to support LGBT who are experiencing similar bullying. With 9 out of 10 gay teenagers experiencing bullying and harassment, and many of them living in rural and suburban areas where their conservative communities provide no support, Savage has taken to the web to reach these teens. The channel accepts submitted videos from adults who can reassure the teens that even though it is difficult now, It Gets Better.
