Absolutely!! I am living proof. I survived a brutal sexual assault in 1974. I had it rough. At one time I thought I was gay because of it. Went on an oddessy for 2 years. Met a guy 2 years older (17 yo at time, I was about to turn 16). I found out after 2 years I was not, have had intimacy problems since the abuse. But By the grace of God I can stand by means of His joy in me and UNCONDITIONALLY love all :)

Introduction

It Gets Better Project

Growing up isn’t easy. Many young people face daily tormenting and bullying, leading them to feel like they have nowhere to turn. This is especially true for LGBT kids and teens, who often hide their sexuality for fear of bullying. Without other openly gay adults and mentors in their lives, they can't imagine what their future may hold. In many instances, gay and lesbian adolescents are taunted — even tortured — simply for being themselves.

Justin Aaberg. Billy Lucas. Cody Barker. Asher Brown. Seth Walsh. Raymond Chase. Tyler Clementi. They were tragic examples of youth who could not believe that it does actually get better.

While many of these teens couldn’t see a positive future for themselves, we can. The It Gets Better Project was created to show young LGBT people the levels of happiness, potential, and positivity their lives will reach – if they can just get through their teen years. The It Gets Better Project wants to remind teenagers in the LGBT community that they are not alone — and it WILL get better.
