ICYMI – The It Gets Better Project joined Teen Vogue Features Editor Britney McNamara for an Instagram Live convo all about the importance of supporting LGBTQ+ youth in schools. Joining the convo? Forty-time Jeopardy champ Amy Schneider, youth activist Zaya Wade and Youth Voices ambassador Zach Koung.

From Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” bill to LGBTQ+ inclusive book bans in school libraries, we’re seeing a major uptick in efforts to discriminate against LGBTQ+ youth. At the same time, students all over the country standing up and speaking out for their rights. Their passion and determination are inspiring. 

Watch the convo here, plus find out more about our nationwide initiative to fund school-based projects empowering LGBTQ+ students — 50 States. 50 Grants. 5,000 Voices.
