'It Gets Better' features Hanson

An essay by Presiding Bishop Mark S. Hanson is included in It Gets Better: Coming Out, Overcoming Bullying, and Creating a Life Worth Living by Dan Savage and Terry Miller (Dutton Adult, 2011).

His essay is a transcript of his "It Gets Better" video that was posted on the project's YouTube channel last October.

Savage and Miller launched the "It Gets Better" project when they created a YouTube video that reached out to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth facing harassment and bullying.

According to the book's notes, more than 6,000 videos with messages of hope and encouragement have been posted, with more than 20 million views the first three months.
