“Circumstances are different in every country, but the message and intention or our Project remain the same: our goal is to make sure LGBT youth worldwide know that there are other people like them, a community waiting to accept them, and people who’ve overcome incredible challenges to live amazing lives – and no matter what it does get better.”

Today is International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia

Worldwide, individuals and organizations are working to raise awareness and to advocate for ways that we can make it better for LGBT people. We’re proud to take part in IDAHO and encourage you to get involved today:

As we continue to expand our international efforts, we’re also excited to announce our first affiliate in Eastern Europe – It Gets Better Moldova, known locally as Egali.

Our Italian affiliate, Le Cose Cambiano, has also recently launched. Be sure to check out both of their websites and follow them, as well as our twelve other international affiliates, on social media!

Working with Egali and Le Cose Cambiano are just the latest in our work to share messages of hope in regions of the world where LGBT youth lack support, resources and acceptance.

Speaking about our growing global network, the It Gets Better Project’s Board Chairman, Seth Levy, was recently interviewed by Radio Free Europe about our efforts to help LGBT youth worldwide.

Circumstances are different in every country, but the message and intention or our Project remain the same: our goal is to make sure LGBT youth worldwide know that there are other people like them, a community waiting to accept them, and people who’ve overcome incredible challenges to live amazing lives – and no matter what it does get better.

We look forward to sharing more exciting updates with you and appreciate your continued support of the It Gets Better Project and our growing International Program.

Sincerely,

Elliot Rozenberg
