Police tell LGBT youth, “It gets better”
The San Francisco Police Department has become the nation’s first law enforcement agency to assure lesbian, gay, bisexual and transsexual young people that yes, it does get better.
More than a dozen LGBT officers and 9-1-1 dispatchers appeared in the eight-and-a-half minute video released today on YouTube and the department’s website. It’s part of a nationwide effort by the non-profit Trevor Project to stem the rising number of teen suicides among the LGBT community. MORE
