CNN: Dan Savage’s Reaction to President Obama’s Video

Columnist, Dan Savage and creator of the "It Gets Better" project spoke to CNN's American Morning on Friday, October 22.

 

"Here you have the President of the United States saying that you didn't choose it -- to be gay -- and you will get through this...that said, the President of the United States has the power to do more than assure LGBT kids that it will get better; the President of the United States has the power to make it better for LGBT adults and children."

 

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."
