A massive pro-GLBT, anti-suicide video project called It Gets Better has spread across the the USA. It Gets Better encourages GLBT youth, no matter how awful their current circumstances are.
Lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans youth (and adults) who need to talk can call the London Lesbian and Gay helpline at 020 7837 7324, open every day from 10am -11pm.
These inspiring videos remind me about how those of us working in public and school library services need to do all we can to support GLBT teens. In the next couple of weeks I’ll post more about ways that libraries can assist young GLBT youth including and beyond collection development.
