It Gets Better VIDEO with LGBT progressive activists in Netroots Nation 2011

June 24, 2011

Finally, this is the “It Gets Better” video we recorded at Netroots Nation 2011 in Minneapolis. LGBT online activists, bloggers, writers, thinkers, organizers, we all got together to create this video with a message to young LGBT people who feel sad, alone or depressed about their sexuality and their future.

This video was recorded in the last day of Netroots Nation 2011. I volunteered my time to record and edit it, the idea original is of Ian Finkenbinder @OneAngryQueer. Most of the participants were also part of the 2011 Netroots Connect conference.

I know the video is long and it can be edited, but I like all of it. If you have any suggestions, please let me know.
