It Gets Better
For the past month Stonewall have been busying themselves recording the contributions of gays and lesbians in the media getting them all to outline why “It Gets Better” to teenagers up and down the country who face difficulties as a result of their sexuality.
Stonewall didn’t ask me. No surprises there. I’m not a celebrity or a personality.
Even so, seeing as the whole of the US seems to have got the bandwagon rolling I saw no shame in jumping on the same bandwagon myself.
Here’s why I think ‘it gets better’. And, if you’re in the UK and you’re gay and you have a video camera (which – come on – most of us do) then tap into your own conscience and record some of your own thoughts for young gay people. Think of it as the very least we can do for the comparatively easy life we all live as a result of previous generations’ campaigning.
