Wisconsin LGBT youth produce stylish new ‘It Gets Better’ music video

Enjoy this stylish new “It Gets Better” music video from Madison, Wisc. resident Colton Boettcher and friends — one of the best “It Gets Better” videos to come along in a while.

Boettcher’s artistic vision takes shape in the form of a music video interpretation of Lady Gaga’s song, “Hair.”


From the video’s description:

Hair is about being yourself, being true to who you are; as the song exemplifies, “you are the spirit of your hair, it’s all the glory you bare”, YOU are your #hair.

As most of us know, growing up isn’t easy. Countless young people are faced with daily tormenting and bullying, causing them to feel isolated and alone. This is an especially harsh reality for LGBT kids and teens, who often hide their sexuality for fear of bullying. In many instances, gay and lesbian adolescents are taunted, sometimes even tortured, simply for being themselves.

The “It Gets Better Project,” launched by Seattle-based activist and author Dan Savage and his husband Terry Miller, has since compiled more than 10,000 online videos to provide support and encouragement to LGBT youth struggling with bullying and adversity.
