Dan Savage, LGBT advocate and editor of Seattle's alt-weekly The Stranger, launched the "It Gets Better" YouTube video project last September after a rash of suicides by gay teens who'd been bullied by their peers.
In his "It Gets Better" video, Savage talked about growing up gay in a Catholic school and assured viewers that life for LGBT people improves as one gets older. Thousands of other "It Gets Better" video testimonials followed, featuring everyone from Glee's Chris Colfer and Ke$ha to Kim Kardashian and President Obama.
Savage will be at Rhodes tonight (Tuesday, Feb. 15th) as part of his "It Gets Better" lecture series. The free, open-to-the-public event begins at 7 p.m. in the McCallum Ballroom at the Bryan Campus Life Center. For more information, check out the Rhodes campus calendar.
