Gay BYU students contribute to “It Gets Better”

The Upshot

The "It Gets Better" campaign continues to gain support. The latest contribution to the video series comes from gay, lesbian, and bisexual students at Brigham Young University.

The clip, which runs about nine minutes, features gay and lesbian BYU students, many of whom are members of the Mormon church. The students talk about when they knew they were gay, some of their most difficult moments, and how their lives have improved.

The goal of the project is, of course, to convince young gay people that their lives will get better. The project began as a way to help children and teens who were being bullied for their sexual orientation. Yahoo! employees have contributed a video of their own.
