Since Dan Savage started this project back in September, Many LGBTQ people have submitted videos about how it gets better.

However, of the videos I've watched, very few touch on one of the most painful and confusing issues for some bullied LGBTG teens: Christianity.

I don't have to imagine what it is like to grow up in a church full of kind, loving people who condemn people to hell just for being different. I experienced it myself, though thankfully not to the extent it takes place today.

Fortunately, I found people within the church who showed me that the problem was not with me, but with the people who so cruelly were trying to "save" me from myself.

I'm trying to pass a little bit of that on in this video.

I have found support within the Methodist church here:

There are similar groups in other denominations. The presbyterians have

Lutherans have

There are many more, in many denominations. I hope you can find a church who will welcome you as the person you are!
