It Gets Better

The "It Gets Better initiative" ( was "created to show young LGBT people the levels of happiness, potential, and positivity their lives will reach – if they can just get through their teen years. The It Gets Better Project wants to remind teenagers in the LGBT community that they are not alone — and it WILL get better."

As part of the PFLAG Regional Conference, held September 7-9, 2012, PFLAG Cleveland hosted an afternoon activity for all interested parties to make their own It Gets Better video. Approximately twenty It Gets Better Videos were professionally recorded to be sent home and used by their local groups! Some of our members elected to post their videos online. Check out some samples from our YouTube channel:!
