"It Gets Better" Project

Oct 5, 2010

The "It Gets Better" Project is inspired by the suicide of 15-year-old Indiana teenager Billy Lucas, who hanged himself in his family's barn after enduring bullying from his classmates. Writer Dan Savage is reaching out to LGBT teenagers to let them know life may be difficult now, but "it gets better." IPR's Charity Nebbe speaks with Savage; Ryan Roemerman of the Iowa Pride Network; and Jeremy Youde of the University of Minnesota at Duluth.
