The Book

It Gets Better is a collection of expanded essays and new material from celebrities, everyday people and teens who have posted videos of encouragement. While many of these teens couldn't see a positive future for themselves, we can. By sharing these stories, It Gets Better reminds teenagers in the LGBT community that they are not alone - and it WILL get better.
