"It Gets Better" Video Opportunity

 In September 2010, syndicated columnist and author Dan Savage created a YouTube video
with his partner Terry Miller to inspire hope for young people facing
harassment. In response to a number of students taking their own lives
after being bullied in school, they wanted to create a personal way for
supporters everywhere to tell LGBT youth that, yes, it does indeed get
better.  Many universities have created their own versions of these
videos and now Lehigh will have one too!

Filming will take place on April 3 and 4 from 12:00 pm- 6:00 pm.  Location will
be emailed out next week based on the weather.  We are looking for LGBTQ
students who would like to talk about their experiences on campus, allies,
faculty, staff, coaches, Greek letter orgs, sports teams etc... pretty much
anyone who is interested in helping us send a positive message to LGBTQ

Interested in this opportunity? Contact Kerri at kdk206@lehigh.edu
