MÉXICO: It Gets Better México, hosted a presentation at the Human Diversity week in Ibero, Mexico City. They spoke about the different identities within their community, using videos to share individual voices. 

 

PERÚ: It Gets Better Perú presented at an Education First leadership summit in Lima with kids from all over the world.

Take the It Gets Better Project Pledge:

Everyone deserves to be respected for who they are. I pledge to spread this message to my friends, family and neighbors. I'll speak up against hate and intolerance whenever I see it, at school and at work. I'll provide hope for lesbian, gay, bi, trans and other bullied teens by letting them know that "It Gets Better."
