About the It Gets Better International Program
The It Gets Better Project brings messages of hope to LGBT youth around the world and works globally to effect change in local communities.
The It Gets Better Project has been international in scope since the first it gets better videos appeared online in September, 2010. Beginning in those early days, countless it gets better videos have been offered from supporters across the globe. The videos are diverse in language, culture and political viewpoint, and feature a range of different issues, but they always demonstrate the unifying theme that it gets better.
Building on the momentum of the international videos, the Project has deployed programs to benefit LGBT youth on six continents. These programs range from conferences coordinated through domestic and foreign government agencies and efforts with the foreign press, to international film and pride festivals and targeted social media outreach.
The Project has also built a diverse and growing network of international affiliates to bring the it gets better message to youth around the world. Through coordinated efforts with its affiliates, the Project is developing resources and effecting change in ways that are tailored to local language, culture and need.
