Joel Burns tells gay teens, "it gets better"

Fort Worth City Councilman Joel Burns reaches out to GLBT teens with a personal story and a message of hope.

A very brave man, an amazing and heartfelt speech and just an incredibly human story.

The best antidote to religious bigotry I've heard in years.

Thank you for posting this, I have been passing it around like mad. I just don't understand why there is so much hate for BGLTs. I just don't get it. Is it this bad in the UK too, or is it just us in the US? I don't know how we can combat this, so much hate is taught at home, so much.

Wow - exactly.

Wow. As a teacher this hits home. We have to figure out how to fight this; we have to keep our kids safe, teach them coping skills, and love them. We have to.
