It Gets Better Project RussiaBY JESS MOOR

Three years after its 2010 founding, courtesy of Dan Savage and Terry Miller, the It Gets Better Project (IGB) launched a new video campaign in response to Russia’s discriminatory anti-gay laws. With the message of the project simply being: “life does get better for LGBT youth,” the organization hopes to shine a positive light on Russian youth with its new initiative.

“The It Gets Better Project hopes to reach the millions of LGBT youth in Russia to show they have international support against the outright discrimination happening across their country,” said the organization’s executive director, Ted Farley. “We want every gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender individual to know they are beautiful, valued and important, and that their friends and allies in the international community are keeping a close eye on their situation while working to end such injustice.”
