After nearly 10,000 video submissions and 30 million views worldwide, the creators of the It Gets Better project have compiled some of its stories into a forthcoming book. The publishers say, “The book is a collection of stories from many people you recognize and some people you don’t, but each and every story will touch you, move you and encourage you to do better for LGBT youth.”
So we can likely expect to see submissions from YouTube favorites Chris Colfer, Ellen, Tim Gunn and Jake Shears — that is, if they want me to buy it. Dan Savage promises to donate his earnings from the book to support LGBT youth and more than 100 of the essay authors have contributed their stories free of charge. Which makes you wonder, who charged?
