It Gets Better Residency
Young People Who Are Bullied Need to Know that it gets better!
it gets better was created in 2010 by syndicated columnist and author Dan Savage as a YouTube video that gave hope to young people who felt bullied. After a rash of suicides by bullied teens, this video by Savage and his husband Terry Miller paved the way for supporters across the word to tell LGBTQ youth in their own words that it does get better.
The it gets better tour takes this profound message one step further, as a small but dedicated ensemble travels to communities nationwide to produce a week of educational workshops culminating in a moving musical theater performance.
Any non-profit organization depends a great deal on the compassion and effort of others; Compass is no different.
We have a number of volunteers who help us function every day. They donate their time and their hearts to our cause and we want to recognize their dedication to our community.
