Apple employees have contributed a video for the “It Gets Better” project, an LGBT support group working to tell bullied kids that it gets better.
The video includes testimonials and stories from self-identified homosexual and transgender Apple employees talking about the bullying they received as children, including several tales of attempted or planned suicide. Those stories resolve to all the ways in which things improve, centered around the theme of “It gets better.”
According to its website, the project was founded in November of 2010, and includes similar submitted videos from President Barack Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Adam Lambert, Anne Hathaway, Colin Farrell, Matthew Morrison of “Glee”, Joe Jonas, Joel Madden, Ke$ha, Sarah Silverman, Tim Gunn, Ellen DeGeneres, Suze Orman, the staffs of The Gap, Google, Facebook, Pixar, the Broadway community, as well as lots of videos from less famous people.
