Dan Savage's message is simple: It Gets Better. The message is to teens coming to grips with sexuality issues and his video project is a call for gay adults around the world to tell their stories. The project and YouTube channel comes as a spate of anti-gay harassment has been making headlines, especially the death of Rutgers student Tyler Clementi, who jumped off a bridge in New York last month after his roommate outed him on the internet.
Just days earlier, Billy Lucas, 15, of Greensburg, Ind. hanged himself after being taunted by classmates for being gay. Before that, Justin Aaberg, 15, of Andover, Minn. met the same fate.
Dan Savage, writer of the sex advice column "Savage Love" and editor of the Seattle alternative weekly, The Stranger, talks about the project and how he thinks communities across the country must address the issue of bullying.
