Aubrey Sarvis, the executive director of Servicemembers Legal Defense Network (SLDN), says being gay is a plus in an 'It Gets Better' video.

The It Gets Better Project begun by gay activist Dan Savage has received enormous support from Hollywood, the business community and leading Democrats, including President Barack Obama. The campaign encourages LGBT teens contemplating suicide to not cave in to bullies, because life eventually gets better.

In its five-minute-twenty-six-second video released on Tuesday, the men and women behind the largest group lobbying for repeal of “Don't Ask, Don't Tell,” the Clinton-era law that bans gay and bisexual troops from serving openly, tell troubled gay teens how it got better for them.

“I know what it's like to be a teenager and have a difficult situation and have a secret or have a tough life because others think you are different,” says Mike Almy, who was discharged under the law.

Almy adds that he struggled through a 13-year career in the Air Force concealing his sexual orientation.

“It gets better because more and more people care about you,” Sarvis says. “It gets better also because more people appreciate the differences that you have. So, see your being different as a plus.” (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.)
