"It Gets Better" (Broadway sings for the Trevor Project)

There's a study out that suggests religious homophobia deepens the despair of teens and young adults struggling with their own precious awakening and sexuality. Can't we agree that the God of touching and blessing is honored by all awakening? Can't we agree that every teenager is beloved and unique and cherished? Can't we agree that adults are charged with creating safe homes, safe schools, safe churches and synagogues - for all kinds of coming out and living up and giving away? Here's a most amazing song put together by loving souls who want queer kids to know life is good and 'it gets better.' As far as I'm concerned, that's the message they're going to get at any church I serve. Life is good, kids. And it gets better.
