We’ve seen spectacular triumphs for the global LGBTQ+ community this year, like support for marriage equality in Australia and non-binary gender recognition in Germany. We’ve also experienced hard disappointments, as protections for the LGBTQ+ community in the United States have come under attack.
But, one thing remains certain: supporting LGBTQ+ youth on their journey of self-affirmation is of critical importance. Thanks to you, the It Gets Better Project is stronger than ever. We’ve surpassed more than 1 million supporters, as the It Gets Better® movement continues to expand around the globe.
Now is the time to stand up again. We’re gearing up for a big 2018. To support our role as a beacon of hope for LGBTQ+ youth, we’re kicking off our year-end Give Hope fundraising challenge.
Thanks to your investment in our work, we have:
- Launched new international affiliates in Canada, Brazil, Russia, and the Dominican Republic!
- Introduced a new education initiative to translate It Gets Better® content into education guides for use in the classroom.
- Released a new web series following the personal stories of some of social media’s biggest LGBTQ+ influencers.
And so much more!
We have accomplished so much. But, until LGBTQ+ youth are free to live equally and understand their worthiness and power as individuals, there is still much to be done.
With your support, we can continue to share the life-affirming stories that will inspire LGBTQ+ youth to explore their greatest potential.
