Giving hope by highlighting the presence of LGBT youth and their allies.
Since its inception in 2010 the It Gets Better Project has used media to convey messages of hope and support to LGBT youth. Our media program now has well over half a million followers on social media networks and Emmy nominated It Gets Better specials on MTV. IGB’s videos, graphic content, and original artwork address the issues most important to LGBT youth and elevate the stories of LGBT people to show that there is always hope for a brighter future.
