NYC Fire Department Tells LGBTQ Kids They’re “Worthy Of Love”

Yep, folks are still making “It Gets Better” videos. In support of the campaign which helps inspire hope among LGBTQ youth, the FDNY has just released the following video, which features a dozen active FDNY firefighters, paramedics, and EMTs discussing challenges they’ve faced throughout their lives, and the success they’ve found both as adults as members of New York’s Bravest. Many of the participants encourage viewers to choose good friendships. “A lot of my queer community I consider family more than my blood family,” says one person. “Love yourself, be OK with yourself,” says another. “You’re worthy of love.”
