It Gets Better Project  (

Quoted from their homepage:

"Many LGBT youth can't picture what their lives might be like as openly gay adults. They can't imagine a future for themselves. So let's show them what our lives are like, let's show them what the future may hold in store for them".

Many individuals and organisation teams from around the world have made video submissions.

Two examples are from Pixar Animation Studios (live video, not animation) and Google.

They talk about their experiences as well as teenage suicidal thoughts.

Many more videos can be searched for including ones from Stonewall and UK Government Ministers.

In addition:

Gloucestershire Hate Crime Partnership and the National Star College have produced a video, uploaded to YouTube.

On the YouTube page (dated 1st June 2011) they state:

"The Gloucestershire Hate Crime and Incident Groups are made up of statutory and voluntary sector partners which are committed to identifying and combating hate crimes and hate incidents. This is done through close multi-agency working in the partnership groups in the county. This film is to raise awareness of what a hate crime / hate incident is; to encourage reporting of such events; how to report one; and the support you can expect.
This film has been produced by the Gloucestershire Hate Crime Partnership and the National Star College."

It's part of Stonewall's #NoBystanders movement:

This 60 second film, narrated by Ian McKellen, shows why we need to do just that.
Watch the film, join the No Bystanders movement and take a stand. #NoBystanders
Visit to take the pledge".
