Massachusetts Rep. Barney Frank has reached out to gay teens in a second It Gets Better video.

The It Gets Better Project was founded by gay activist Dan Savage. The group's website hosts thousands of videos from everyday folks to elected officials and celebrities encouraging troubled gay teens considering suicide to hang in there, because life gets better.

In July, the 71-year-old, openly gay Frank appeared in a video for the campaign along with Democratic members of the Massachusetts congressional delegation. Missing from the video was Senator Scott Brown, the delegation's only Republican.

“It gets better for two reasons,” Franks says in the nearly 2 minute video. “As you get older you deal with people who are more mature, with people who are not prone to the kind of problems frankly that teenagers inflict on each other. But it's also getting better because of projects like this. And because of the courage of people of your generation.”

“Because as we look at America, the younger people are, the less likely they are to be prejudiced and that's to a great extent to your credit. Because gay and lesbian and bisexual and transgender youth all over America no longer hide the way my generation did. And by being honest about yourselves you're liberating people from their prejudice.” (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.)
