It really, honestly does get better. Just hang in there for now. Transcript: Hi, I'm Katy, I'm a few days shy of my twenty-sixth birthday and i just wanted to add my voice to all those telling you that it really, honestly, truly does get better. Right now you're in high school, or secondary school, or whatever they call it in your part of the world and things are tough. Maybe it feels like nothing's ever going to change -- I know it did for me. People were always going to be cruel and homophobic and closed-minded and awful, and I was alway s going to be trapped. But if I could give just one piece of advice to my about-to-turn-sixteen-year-old self, it would be that the world is so, so much bigger than it seems right now. It's not all sunshine and puppies, but it contains people just like you. People who laugh at the same things that you laugh at, and get angry at the things that make you angry. And, like, you know, some of them are going to be gay and some of them are going to be bi and trans and otherwise queer, and that's going to be so awesome. You're not the first person in the world who's felt like you do, and you're not going to be the last, but we find each other, and that makes life easier. I say easier. That makes life awesome. Seriously, forget easier, remember awesome -- that makes life so much worth living. And even more than that, even more than the people you're going to meet and fall in love with and fool around with and have awesome amazing hilarious embarrassing sex stories about, even more than all that, *you* are so much more than you feel right now. High school isn't life. High school is just like being strapped down and forced to watch awful trailers for four or five years before you get to the real movie. But, I promise, honestly, it gets better. So, good luck. It gets better. I promise.
