San Francisco General Hospital to Release “It Gets Better” Video for LGBT Youth

Who's better qualified to assure LGBT teens that there's nothing wrong with them than a staff of certified doctors and nurses? Following in the footsteps of the Giants and the San Francisco Police Department, San Francisco General Hospital is releasing its own “It Gets Better” video for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered youth, hoping to help curb the violence and suicides across the nation.
The video, which was filmed in May, features 35 hospital staff members, some of whom share their own stories of being different. One participant talks about his experience with sexual conversion therapy.

“What we're hoping is that the message gets out to LGBT teens that not only do things get better in general [after high school] … but that these are 30 adults who went through all that, and came out on the other side,” said Tristan Cook, spokesman for SFGH.
