‘It Gets Better’ for Gay Mormons, Too
Brigham Young University has been called one of the least LGBT-friendly campuses in the U.S.: according to the “It Gets Better” video produced by Brigham Young University students, 74 percent of LGBT students at BYU have considered suicide, and 24 percent have attempted suicide. The video was made by campus group Understanding Same-Gender Attraction (USGA), which is not officially recognized by the Mormon university. [source]
‘It Gets Better’ Sara Racey in New York.
“During the month of October, under the coordination of sisters Stefanie and Rachel Berks of the Ford Art Department, members of the greater Ford Models family in New York took a moment to create a series of video messages with models, makeup artists, stylists, parents, bookers, and others to show LGBTQ youth that indeed life gets better. With the media cycle having focused on a series of tragic gay teen suicides, it is now more than ever important to get this message out there: no matter how dire the situation may seem or how great the pain may feel, it gets better. The stories shared by the people in these videos stand as a testament to this fact.

WHAT THE FRIGGIN’ NORA?
A spin-off of the web phenomena that is "Lesbians who look like Justin Bieber", this blog is pretty much exactly the opposite...
So, this blog started off as a joke - it’s nothing against the Bieb, just simply that not every lesbian looks like him… In fact, what happened was the more we searched for new posts, the more we discovered that there’s a lot of encouraging, inspiring & sexy stuff out there!
We’re just sharing what we buzz off. Here we have a celebration of the time we live in. It’s a sneaky peek into open closets from the past and the present. It’s also become a place to share triumphs of our community, the highs and lows of our generation (mostly the highs) and just generally brilliant and important stuff relating to all things gay.
If you have any questions, please ask. If you have any suggestions, please make them known. If you have any revelations, please reveal. If you want to share, please open up. You are amazing and this is for you.
