[Frame is tight on Narrator's face.]

I know things seem bad.

You're pushed around, you feel like an outsider, the people who you look up to for help aren't always there to help you.

If you're gay or lesbian or bi or transgender or queer or whatever -- you might feel like you're completely alone.

[Camera backs out to show a crowd of people]

But you're not.

[These lines are delivered by various people in the crowd:]

  1. Things are tough now.
  2. But if you've made it this far, you're tough, too. You can make it.
  3. And no matter how bad it seems, remember: it gets better.
  4. You're going to grow up.
  5. You're going to take control of your life.
  6. And you're going to do amazing things with it.
  7. We know what you're going through. We went through it, too.

[Members of the crowd describe in one sentence a challenge they faced when they were young: "I was bullied," "I felt alone in my church," "I lost my friends," "I cried all the time," etc.]

Narrator: It was hard. But we made it. And so will you.

[Members of the crowd describe in one sentence how their lives transformed for the better: "I moved to San Francisco," "I found a gay-friendly church," "my parents learned to accept me," "I became a counselor for other gay kids," etc.]

  1. No matter where you are in the world...
  2. ... no matter how old you are ...

  4. ... no matter your background ...
  5. ... you're a part of our community, and you're never alone.

[Back to the narrator:]

You've got a great life ahead of you. And once you make it through the tough times, it's just going to get better, and better, and better.

You’re going to be so happy you made it.
