The It Gets Better project produced a fantastic, heartfelt full-length special that premiered on MTV earlier this year. It chronicled the stories of three young people in the LGBT community who struggled with some form of coming out or repression. Now they're producing a second special and they want you to be featured!
If you're coming out, particularly if you have a coming out story in sports, we'd love to see you as a part of the next It Gets Better special. It's a great project they're working on with MTV, and it's a great opportunity to infuse sports into more of the discussion! Check out the submission info below. Good luck!
