“I read this article in Rolling Stone about gay and lesbian teenagers. Do I fit that crowd? A guy in the article said he doesn’t get the same ‘buzz’ with girls as he does with guys. BINGO. That is me.” Lisa, Age 17

“The It Gets Better Project…forced straight people – politicians, teachers, preachers, and parents – to decide whose side they were on. Were they going to come to the defense of bullied LGBT teenagers? Or were they going to remain silent and, by so doing, give aid and comfort to the young anti-gay bullies who attack LGBT children…?” Dan Savage. www.itgetsbetter.org

8 out of 10 gay teens are bullied.
