A Place Called Home says:

It’s always great to see young people full of hope even when things went
wrong at some place in time. This is from Scotland, and it does get better!

Sarah Hannigan says:

This is fucking beautiful, all of you are amazing to have come out proud :’}

centrechannel says:

Well done for producing this and broadcasting. Yes, it does get better. If
you are a young person viewing there are two organisations that can also
help, they are USA, PFLAG and in the UK, FFLAG. (to young LGB viewing – you
are not alone, speak to someone if you feel low)

I get teary eyed while watching this. You are all so strong and brilliant
and I thank you so much for doing this. You are all amazing and have helped
me come to terms with who I am also. So much love. < 3

James Gardner says:

I have always found the LGBT Youth Scotland It gets better videos hard
hitting, and so helpful when I was having an hard time, in school and
wondered about going to one of the youth groups near to me, I did and I
think it was the best thing I ever did. I watched them today in an lecture
theatre with some people I know from LGBT Youth Scotland, and the emotion
of watching them again back to back with people who made them, sitting in
same room as me was just overhelming. I know it gets better.

Steve Callum says:

Be proud of your sexuality. NEVER let haters destroy you….take it from a
41 year old who suffered bullying at high school for being gay ….it does
get better. Be thankful that you are not in Russia right now. Gay teens
there are tortured and beaten and some have recently been killed. Be
thankful for the chance to live in a country that tolerates and embraces
differences…many gay teens in the world dont live in an equality based
society. Be proud gay youth.

well done Scotland on pushing for same sex marriage! 🙂

Brenda Schwartz says:

Beautiful. As a gay American, I wish we could see more of this. When I came
out it wasnt easy and there were NO support groups…. I can tell you this
would have helped a lot. So, THANK YOU. You all are BEAUTIFUL! WE ALL ARE
