In a new It Gets Better video, American Airlines employees urge troubled gay teens to hang in there.

The It Gets Better Project encourages troubled LGBT teens to not cave in to bullies, because life eventually gets better.

And in their 6-minute-57-second video, the men and women of American let teens know exactly how it got better for them. The video begins with an American Airlines boarding pass issued to It Gets Better.

“I never really told anybody this or talked about it in public, but when I was a kid I made a little half-hearted attempt to commit suicide. Because I just couldn't deal with my thoughts and my feelings and knowing that I wasn't like everybody else,” a male employee says.

“Don't do that. Don't let that happen,” he urges. “Life is too precious. You are too precious. You need to be here. People do love you. People do care about you. And it does get better.”

“You are the person you are meant to be,” a woman adds. “Be proud of who you are. Stand up for yourself. Because it does get better and your life will be fabulous.” (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.)

American Airlines joins other large companies that have created such videos, including Google, Pixar, Microsoft and Apple.
