MTV will air an hour-long documentary tomorrow night, Feb. 21, on the “It Gets Better Project” at 11 p.m. The documentary will also be simultaneously broadcast on Logo.
"The lives of these three young people will resonate with millions of teens—gay and straight—who are being bullied for simply being themselves,” said project founder Dan Savage in an official statement. "It's so important they know that things get better and that living openly and honestly and being who you are makes it better. They have so many great moments ahead of them and they will do things they never thought possible—so long as they keep fighting, stay positive, and stay with us."
Created by columnist Savage and his partner Terry Miller in Sept. 2010 after a rash of teenage suicides of LGBT youth because of bullying, the “It Gets Better Project” has grown to now feature thousands of videotaped personal stories from LGBT people reminding bullied youth that they are not alone in their struggles.
