Gareth Thomas "It Gets Better" video

Cyd and I met out rugby player Gareth Thomas today (our story and video will be upcoming), and he told us he filmed an "It Gets Better" video yesterday. He said that had these been available when he was wrestling with his sexuality, it would have made a big difference.

"What an amazing thing," he said. Had he had these videos as a young person "I would have found a kind of comfort. I thought I was the only gay person in the world."

He tells his story in a powerful and straightforward manner. It's a must-watch:
