    I was watching my weekly Glee, instead of doing homework, and that It Gets Better commercial came on. I instantly got teary eyed, and felt a whirlwind of mixed emotions, as if I just lived a whole 6 year bitter and jovial relationship roller coaster in that minute time span. It felt good and awkward. I just feel like I had to share that, why? I do not know.

    I love It Gets Better! I think it was the best idea someone could come up with to help people dealing with their own coming out. It definitely helped me as a kind of mantra for hard times.

    For anyone that missed it.

    I was totally caught off guard with this. It is such a sweet commercial that reached to many people tonight.

    The boyfriend and I teared up during this. Amazing.

    Now lets hope they air it on some typically non-gay friendly programming.

    Yea, it caught me off guard as well. Actually got me to thinking about posting a video for the project. That was the call at the end of the commercial. Pretty cool, I think.

    I am in class during Glee so I have to watch it online later. But I am glad I got to swee the commercial on here. I really like the videos. I watch some from time to time. They are very inspirational.

    Funny, I was just talking about how much this "it gets better" affected me.

    The movement is great. My personal favorite is this one.

    Well, it's certainly very touching. It always makes me tear up after living most of my life in fear and denial. Oh and I knew Woody was gay! Hot cowboy partner! LOL

    I was taking a nap and woke up to Glee, so I was getting ready to change the channel (-_-) when I saw this ad. Really moving and motivating.

    ... happy, overjoyed, touched, heartfelt, relieved, mournful, elated, vulnerable, and,...........thankful.

    The magic is gone.

    It kills me to say that the spark is not hitting it on all cylinders any longer.
    Hopefully GLEE with get better TOO!


    I'm glad I'm not the only one that feels that way- I'll keep watching hoping that it'll improve...

    Did they really air the whole thing? all 1:30 minutes of it!?!
    Commercials are usually only 0:30 minutes.

    It went by in an instant.

    This is a great point!
