Dan Savage Tells Gay Teens “It Gets Better”

Check out this amazing and heartwarming video from sex columnist Dan Savage and his husband Terry talking about their 16-year relationship and their son DJ. They remind gay, lesbian and trans teens that “it does get better.” Both Dan and Terry reveal what growing up gay in conservative towns and families was like, and encourage LGBT kids to hang on ’til they get out of high school. This video is part of Savage’s “It Gets Better” Project, aimed at preventing gay teen suicide — a major issue considering gay teens are FOUR times more likely to attempt suicide than their straight peers. This is definitely a step in the right direction. [It Gets Better Project]
