In 2010, Dan Savage and his partner, Terry Miller, uttered three words that would give rise to a global movement focused on empowerment of LGBTQ+ youth — it gets better. What began as a wildly successful social media campaign to provide hope and encouragement to young LGBTQ+ people has evolved into a major, multi-media platform capable of reaching millions of young people every year through inspiring media programming, a growing network of international affiliates, and access to an arsenal of community-based service providers.
Over 60,000 people have shared their It Gets Better story.
625,674 have pledged to help It Gets Better.
Alumni of Common Bond's U-21 program share their experiences on coming out, overcoming challenges, and tell theirs stories of how it gets better.
