In a new It Gets Better video, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi says diversity in an “American strength.”

“You are not alone,” Pelosi says to troubled gay teens considering suicide.

“As a mother and a grandmother, I want to tell you that a better tomorrow awaits. Filled with opportunity, with hope, with the promise of success, with respect and progress for all.”

Pelosi says the country has overcome inequality before and is prepared to do so again for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people.

“Bigotry and bullying have no place in our society,” she adds. “Bullying contradicts our American values and our aspirations. Diversity is an American strength.”

“Together, united we will remind our LGBT youth and all Americans: It gets better.” (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.)

The It Gets Better campaign is the brainchild of sex advice columnist and activist Dan Savage, who launched the project by uploading a video on YouTube. Savage announced Wednesday that the collection of videos which urge troubled gay teens to get help had swelled to 20,000, with over 10 million views.

Other celebrities and high-profile politicians who have created videos include President Barack Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, New York Governor David Paterson, Fort Worth Councilman Joel Burns, rocker Adam Lambert and actor Neil Patrick Harris.
