The “It Gets Better” movement doesn’t seem to be slowing down. It seems every few days, a new one is being uploaded. The latest public figures to make their videos are cast members of HBO’s hit show “True Blood“. Alexander Skarsgard (Eric), Rutina Wesley (Tara), Kristin Bauer (Pam) and show creator Alan Ball filmed PSAs in support of Dan Savage’s project.
I have to admit, I’m a little surprised it’s taken this long for them to show their support. Considering “True Blood” has been labeled “The Most Gay-Friendly Show on TV” by GLAAD, I would’ve expected videos sooner. The show’s story lines often revolve around vampire rights and acceptance which often mimic the LGBT’s community’s ongoing fight. Most probably, they were waiting until the fourth season started airing. Whatever the reason, I’m glad a few of the cast are sharing their stories and inspiring LGBT youth that they’re not alone and things do get better in the future.
Check out their vids below. Kristin Bauer’s is especially heartfelt and emotional. As if I didn’t love her enough already. Her vid just endears her more to me. On the flip side Rutina Wesley’s will make you smile. It’s as if her character Tara Thornton was delivering the message.
