In what appears to be one of the most authentic It Gets Better videos to date, Pixar employees pour out their hearts to support gay teens.

The It Gets Better Project encourages troubled gay teens to hang in there and not cave in to bullies because life gets better. And in their 8-minute video, the men and women of Pixar let teens know exactly how it got better for them.

“There's a sense of invisibility when you're gay, because you don't want to step out, you don't want to show too much. Not everyone is Kurt on Glee,” says an unidentified male Pixar employee.

“I acted tough, I put on a show,” says another.

“They called me faggot and pushed me around.”

“It got to a point where I was just so scared of everything and everyone that I wouldn't actually talk to anyone.”

“I didn't know what to do. I didn't know how to make sense of the world.”

“Somebody interrupted me from jumping off the roof of my dorm,” a female says. “I am so grateful to that person today. Because things got so much better and I wouldn't have known it if they hadn't stopped me.”

“I finally started thinking about what being gay was going to be for me,” a male says.

“I just started by realizing that I had to love myself first,” another adds.

“And it took a while,” a male speaker says. “I think it just took time.”

“It's made me such a stronger person to be gay.”

“Don't let anyone tell you that you are less than zero just because you're gay,” a female says.

“If I could just come through the screen right now and give you a big hug and tell you it gets better, I would totally do that,” a cuddlesome man adds. (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.)
