Altogether, the organization has 13 affiliates participating in IDAHOT events on 4 different continents.
The It Gets Better Project has been international in scope since the first it gets better videos appeared online in September, 2010. Beginning in those early days, countless it gets better videos have been offered from supporters across the globe.
The videos are diverse in language, culture and political viewpoint, and feature a range of different issues, but they always demonstrate the unifying theme that it gets better.
The It Gets Better International website has just been launched and you can find it here.
