President Barack Obama has joined the viral “It Gets Better” campaign, filming a segment in a series of high-profile videos urging troubled gay teens not to take their own lives.
The campaign’s title is a reassurance that bullying over their sexuality will eventually stop. “I don’t know what it’s like to be picked on for being gay. But I do know what it’s like to grow up feeling that sometimes you don’t belong. It’s tough,” the President says in the video.
