Suicide rates among queer kids growing up in America today are unfortunately high. The people in this video have seen decades of the gay rights movement go by. So when they tell you "it gets better," I'm inclined to believe they know what they're talking about. There's so much you can learn from your elders. Please stick around to hear them out.
Trigger warning: discussions of suicide.
