Daily Desk Cry: It Gets Better Project

Alexandra Heide

I'm not going to pretend that this isn't an old one, but it's an old one and a good one, and an important thing to have until we see social acceptance and equality for all. Here's to hoping it happens in my lifetime. Anyway, Dan Savage is best known for his amazing podcast Savage Love, but he and his husband Terry started the It Gets Better Project in 2010 to help LGBT youth get through years of harassment and bullying. Google picked up the video and used it in the Google Chrome commercial below.

While it would normally bother me to see a brand hijack a cause to make an ad, in this case I'm happy that Google helped elevate the It Gets Better Project in a powerful, emotionally-driven way. Just try to keep a dry eye at the line "There's art to be made, there are songs to be sung..."

Let's use the Internet to create more beautiful things like this.
