Many LGBT youth can't picture what their lives might be like as openly gay adults. They can't imagine a future for themselves. So let's show them what our lives are like, let's show them what the future may hold in store for them.
Speaker Pelosi's message to LGBT youth: "In America's rich history, we've overcome barriers and obstacles before, for women, and for religious, racial and ethnic minorities. And we are doing it again for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender Americans. During this challenging time for so many, you should know that I am on your side."
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."
