John Berry’s It Gets Better Video Is Not The Stodgy Misfire We Expected

So here is an It Gets Better video from John Berry, the OPM director and the highest-ranking known gay in the Obama administration. And I actually like it! Berry, who says he wasn’t bullied as a kid, focuses not on the torment of other kids like most of these videos, but on how he overcame pressure from his parents (OMG that tidbit about his father is making me cry) and an innate fear that being gay would mean God didn’t love him. And wow, look how things turned out.
