If your facebook feed is like mine, these It Gets Better videos have been all over it all weekend. A project started by saucy gay advice columnist/memoirist/whatever Dan Savage, the idea behind the videos is to give depressed gay teenagers an idea of how much life improves for a gay man as soon as he grows up and finds his tribe. Gays all over the internet have followed Savage’s example, submitting their own testimonies to the Gods of Youtube.
In a nutshell the message is: don’t worry, you’ll get laid someday. Which, crass as it may sound, really would have made me feel way better as a 14-year-old gay hatchling. What these optimistic gays leave out of their videos: you’ll also have to pay rent. Which, you know, pretty much ruins everything. :'( :'( :'(. Now who’s going to make a video to cheer me up?!
