In a touching It Gets Better video, members of the Out & Allied Employee Resource Group of NASA's Johnson Space Center discuss how it got better for them.

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

“A classmate of mine, when I was a freshman in high school was rumored to be dating a senior girl and that her car was vandalized,” a female employee says. “And I found it, it was intensely upsetting. And I remember going to talk to a counselor about my feelings, being very upset about that. And she looked me in the eye and told me that that was what she got for being different, which helped me to understand that my questions and my feelings needed to stay very deep inside of me.”

The nearly 10 minute video includes testimony from dozens of employees.

“Being gay doesn't necessarily define you,” a male employee says. “It's just one factor of who you are. At NASA, I'm able to be an engineer. I'm able to be gay. I'm accepted, even loved.” (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
