The lights are on
Contributing in a big way to the It Gets Better Project, EA released an inspirational video today featuring stories from LGBT staffers about growing up gay. The project was conceived after bullying led two gay teens – Justin Aaberg and Billy Lucas – to commit suicide in unrelated incidences.
The video begins on a slightly somber note, detailing the hardships that spawned the project in the first place. During the lengthy video the tone changes to a more positive one, however, as the EA staffers discuss their accomplishments and shed light on what the future can hold for struggling youth.
Kudos to EA.
I am glad to see positive things like this in such a bleak world.
Good to see the company I give so much to give back.
It's great to see the video game industry getting involved in positive stuff like this. Kudos to EA.
*Applause* Seriously though, this is great. I'm glad to see a company as big as EA is making such an amazing gesture to those who really need it. Especially in a time when homosexuality is being made such a controversy (Don't Ask Don't Tell, etc.), we need people like this standing up for what's right.
Bullying in general shouldn't be tolerated. To put a spin on it using just strictly someone's sexuality is dumb.
That said EA is jumping on board with the good publicity wagon because hasn't this campaign been going on for a few months now? Of course any big name company would enjoy doing something like this because it makes them look good.
I'm glad to see support coming from the game industry. You are right Meagan kudos to EA.
This was a really cool thing to do, I respect EA much more for doing this.
