The It Gets Better book tour kicks off on March 22nd in NYC. Join us in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle and Portland for events. Additional locations TBD.
We've teamed up with the new Broadway musical "Priscilla Queen of the Desert" to produce our first public service announcement to be aired on broadcast TV. The cast members contacted us and the CBS affiliate in New York to see if we'd be interested and we all told them to "go for it!" Check out the ad here.
With just a month away until the release of the "It Gets Better Book," we got some great feedback from our supporters who said "you should get this book in every school in the country!" So we're doing it. Help us do this by donating $25 to get our book in your school library.
Thanks to www.dereklovesshopping.com we're here at our It Gets Better lounge at NY Fashion Week.
When the clock struck midnight last night the votes were tallied and thanks to a huge push yesterday by GLSEN and our allies online, we bumped GLSEN up to #2, making it a finalist for one of two $250,000 grants in the Pepsi Refresh campaign. Thank you for doing better for LGBT youth!
“It Gets Better: The Book” is coming out March 22nd, six months after we launched the project. The book is a collection of stories from many people you recognize and some people you don’t, but each and every story will touch you, move you and encourage you to do better for LGBT youth. Pre-order the book today to ensure you get a first edition copy!
Commissary, Logan Tavern and The Heights (all part of EatWellDC) are promoting Monday, January 31st, 2011 as "It Gets Better" night and will donate 10% of their proceeds to help LGBT youth. If you are in the DC-area (Logan Circle or Columbia Heights) we hope to see you on Monday!
Earlier this week a forum was held in Rapid City, South Dakota on how many young adults say the have felt despair at varying levels, but they got through it with the support of friends and family and an increasing acceptance in society.
