In response to the sad spate of suicides by gay teenagers who suffered bullying at school, Dan Savage has started the It Gets Better Project. It's videos on youtube by adult gay people who made it out of high school and are reassuring young gay people that life gets better.

The uploads section is Dan and his husband/boyfriend's video, and the favorites is the submissions by others.

I've only watched Dan's so far, and I don't know if I'm going to watch others, but I think it's a really good project.

There's a link to the petition in the article Dan Savage links to. If you're of voting age, I encourage signing. If not a registered voter, I don't know if it makes much difference, since this is in the UK.

Rosa Parks has died.
At the age of 92.
I cannot think of the proper words to grieve her passing.
Rest in peace.
