It Gets Better Wins the Governors Award

September 7, 2012

The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Board of Governors awarded the "It Gets Better" project their 2012 Governors Award this year.

From an article in Deadline:

“The It Gets Better Project is a great example of strategically, creatively and powerfully utilizing the media to educate and inspire,” said [Bruce] Rosenblum. “This is television moving well beyond the traditional physical set in the viewer’s living room to the intimacy of the monitor, laptop, tablet or mobile device and delivering the ideal mix of inspiration and creativity to affect awareness and, ultimately, change. The Academy is proud to celebrate the success the Project is already having on LGBT youth, and, to hopefully, drive more visibility for this important cause.”

Such an honor for Dan Savage, Terry Miller, and all the other hundreds of contributors! We are glad to see the project continue to move people, on YouTube, in book form, on MTV and elsewhere.
