Here's a new campaign that's been started by US sex advice columnist Dan Savage called "It Gets Better". It aims to tackle REAL teenage suicide (no seriously, don't do it) by LGBT kids, by proving to them that life after high school does get better, in a series of testimonial clips by older members of the gay community. Savage has opened up the floor to anyone who wants to make a clip, all will be linked/posted on Youtube. Just turn on the camera and tell people why you think life as a queer person gets better after school. What an amazing idea! I can't wait to see the submissions, I reckon some of them are gonna be fierce - we here at Menergy might even be tempted to record some. I mean, who doesn't like showing off for the camera? And if it helps end situations like this, then all the better.
