jace - it gets better

this is my youtube submission for dan savage's "it gets better" project. i don't usually talk in my youtube videos so forgive me if it's not that good. anyway, i just wanted to tell young people who are struggling with the sexual identity that they really aren't alone and there are countless people out there going through the same issues, and many more people who want to help. i was bullied in both elementary and high school (it wasn't because i was gay, actually, but because i was small and easy to pick on - i don't even want to imagine how much more bullying i would have endured if i had come out as a teenager), and i struggled with my sexual identity throughout my teens and even early adulthood, but it got better. time heals everything. gay teens shouldn't have to feel that ending their life is the answer. suicide is never the answer. life will get better, and that's a promise. hang in there. for more info, see: http://www.youtube.com/itgetsbetterproject
