HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius Tells LGBT Youth ‘It Gets Better’

WASHINGTON, DC–(ENEWSPF)–October 29, 2010.  The U.S. Department of Health and Human Servicestoday released a video message yesterday from Secretary Kathleen Sebelius telling lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) youth suffering from bullying and intolerance that they are not alone, and that it will get better.

The Secretary’s message is in response to the recent news of young people taking their own lives after being victims of bullying because they were gay or believed to be gay.

As Secretary Sebelius says in her video message, “Don’t let the bullies win and don’t let them cut your future short. We need you and your talents, and whether you feel it or not, lots of people do care about you. I promise you, it gets better. Today may seem dark.  But tomorrow will be brighter. And so will the day after that….And the day after that. So be strong, be safe, and know that you are loved and supported.”

Resources for adults and children about bullying and how to stop it, can be found at: www.BullyingInfo.org

Secretary Sebelius’ message will appear as part of the “It Gets Better Project,” a viral campaign featuring thousands of video messages intended to help LGBT teenagers who are victims of bullying. Their website is: http://www.itgetsbetterproject.com/
