  1. THIS VIDEO IS a step in the right direction I love it! This is a movement for tolerance. I kinda like how they did away with this it gets better project within the first few seconds. It was the very same question I asked my self after i ask where are all the people of color saying it gets better? I then found a latina lesbian who said: "It doesn't get better you get stronger." Although these words rang true for me I was still not satisfied.
    The problem was the wait. Why did I have to wait for tolerance? Why was I so oppressed that I couldn't ask my school, my city or my government to get off their asses and make me safe NOW? Its happening now like it has been and the wait needs to be over. I say if we want to cluster the Queer movement into a cause I THINK THIS SHOULD BE IT.
    In our class we have been talking about how the movement has left people out and indeed I didn't see many differently abled people in this film but I think this movement will put us all on the map!
