Several Yale University students and staff members have recorded a video for the It Gets Better campaign, including Katie Miller.

Miller is the lesbian cadet who quit the West Point Academy in protest over “Don't Ask, Don't Tell,” the now-defunct military policy which for 18 years threatened to end the military careers of gay students who did not hide their sexual orientation. Miller was ninth-ranked in her class of 1,157 when she resigned two years into her program. She has since said she hopes to join the military through officer candidate school after graduating from Yale.

The It Gets Better Project encourages bullied LGBT teens considering suicide to hang in there, because life eventually gets better.

In the 14-minute video, Miller discussed her experience.

“I spent two years at West Point, which is the United States military academy. While I was there, this was 2008 to 2010, 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' was in full effect. If you are found out to be 'homosexual' then you are discharged from the military. So it was actually written into law when I was there that I could not be gay,” Miller said.

Other students discussed coming out gay and life on campus. (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)

Miller, who came out gay at 17, has previously said she enjoyed taking gay-related curriculum at Yale not offered at West Point.
