WATCH: Veteran Broadway Hoofer Records Her Own It Gets Better Video

Former Broadway showgirl Estelle Van Buren (a.k.a. comedian Jen Tullock) is kvelling over her grandson’s gay wedding—or is that her gay grandson’s wedding?—and recorded her own version of an “It Gets Better” video in his honor.

If you like Tullock’s work, check out her clip of Michele Bachmann’s lesbian friends. It’s quite the revelation.

    More proof that It gets better is nothing but a BS PR campaign used for self promotion by Z-list actors and ‘celebrities’. Then again IGB was started by the media whore Dan Savage who did it to get a reality TV show on MTV and Savage is r acist, bi p hobic, and trans p hobic. This video has nothing to do with helping LGBT youth or LGBT equality and everything to do with this woman self promoting herself and her comedy career.

    Dave – you’re an idiot, or a troll. Non-politicians like Dan Savage and even minor celebrities like Kathy Griffin have done more for gay rights than Obama; they are also helping gay teens see that they are not alone. What’s your problem with that?

  • Mike

    Kathy griffin is a media whore and like Dan Savage she doesn’t give a shit about the LGBT community, our equality and rights, and only uses LGBT issues to further their own self promotion and make money. Obama has done way more for LGBT people than professional media whores like Griffin and Savage have ever done. Furthermore we’re seeing an entire generation of LGBT youth who made IGB videos kill themselves while Savage writes love letters to Rick Santorum and self promotes on MTV, and takes our money. IGB does nothing to help LGBT youth or actually stop school bullying. Telling LGBT youth to put up with bullying or keep the fact that they’re depressed or suicidal to themselves and not tell their parents or teachers is cruel.

  • Yeah OK

    Like this woman actually knows about bullying or about being LGBT. *rolls eyes*

    She’s a queer comedian!
