It Gets Better: California College of the Arts (CCA)

California College of the Arts proudly announces its official video in the national It Gets Better Project youth-suicide prevention campaign. The just-over-seven-minute video, filmed, directed, and edited by Photography student Yoni Klein (with graphic design by student Nick Navarro), features CCA alumni, faculty, staff, and students who share personal messages about the benefits of living today as an openly lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, or queer (LGBTQ) person. The goal of project is to send positive messages to those LGBTQ persons who are struggling with their identify, assuring them that things will get better. The video project, part of the college's ongoing commitment to increasing diversity at CCA, was produced by the Communications Office under the direction of Senior Marketing Manager Clay Walsh, Web Editor and Content Manager Jim Norrena, and Communications Associate Sarah Owens. The 24 subjects represent a diverse cross-section of the CCA community (programs of study, gender, age, ethnicity). Visit cca.edu/diversity
