Hey [firstname,fallback=everyone], it’s Jujubee here!
I want to talk to you about why I’m a supporter of the It Gets Better Project and why we should all show our support this holiday season.
Representation is so important. Visibility is important. When you’re a young kid who is gay or lesbian, bisexual or transgender, or maybe you don’t know how you identify yet, you’re just starting out on your journey… you want to know that there’s a place for you. That there are people who see you, who have been where you are and who know how you feel.
The It Gets Better Project is guiding LGBTQ+ youth on their journey to self-acceptance and discovery through stories and the “it gets better” videos we’re all very familiar with — but also through school presentations, educational materials, on social media with videos on TikTok, and important conversations on Twitch.
And they’re doing it on a global scale too. It’s in 20 countries including Argentina, Peru, India, Russia and so many more. They’re showing queer kids that it’s OK to be exactly who you are. In fact, it’s more than OK. It’s amazing!
Help us reach LGBTQ+ youth at the beginning of their journey so that so they have a head start on leading full, rich, meaningful, and exciting lives. There is still so much work to be done, and so many kids will benefit from the It Gets Better Project’s work.
You can help us make sure that queer kids from all over the world enjoy the journey of discovering who they are and they never feel unworthy of accomplishing great things. Please make a donation today to the It Gets Better Project.
Thank you so much for your time. I love you.
Spread good juju!
