Active duty soldiers send message of tolerance to gay teens
A group of active duty soldiers in Bagram, Afghanistan recently released their own contribution to the “It Gets Better” video series, sending a message of tolerance to gay and bisexual teens hounded by bullies and their peers.
“It’s really hard, being accepted, to be different,” one soldier explains. “But it’s even harder to be somebody that you’re not. So, once you find that group of friends that embrace who you are, just go with the flow. It gets better.”
The video is an outreach effort by the group OutServe, an LGBT support organization for U.S. soldiers. It was published on Monday, Jan. 23, 2012.
