WATCH: LGBT Teens Record Messages To Their 40-Year-Old Selves

We’re kind of blown away by this clip from young members of the Illinois Safe Schools Alliance.  By projecting themselves into the future—where they see themselves as confident and successful adults—these queer teens are able to put their present stresses and difficulties in perspective. (It’s kind of genius, actually.)

And it’s amazing how, in the few years since we were their age (very few years), LGBT youth have found their own voices and developed a sense of community.  As we reflect on the Day of Silence, let’s also remember that our strongest weapon against intolerance is our ability to speak out.

      What a lovely video! Also, that androgynous girl in the black triangle T-shirt is SO freaking pretty.
