Finding Pride

Many It Gets Better videos follow the story of Joseph Campbell’s hero’s journey. The videos begin with a hero (e.g., celebrities, politicians, or everyday people) confronting a crisis such as questioning their gender identity, deciding whether to come out to family and friends, or experiencing intense discrimination. However complex and seemingly insurmountable the crisis, the hero emerges, coming out, finding a community that supports and loves them, and learning to embrace their authentic selves.
