Edelman to LGBT Youth: It Gets Better.

Edelman’s done its part for the It Gets Better Project with a video to LGBT youth loaded with personal stories and advice from a number of employees, from account people to VPs. Even Ben Boyd, the Global Chair, makes an appearance.

We dig that Edelman is taking a definitive stance on a topic that remains delicate in our society. This is a civil rights issue and, as such, ought to matter even to people who don’t feel directly affected. We also liked how carefully, how thoughtfully, they told teens that they have no way of comprehending yet what they’re going to miss if they give up now.

Having left, it’s easy to forget that high school is an all-encompassing universe. It’s hard to imagine the world having different rules, or your life playing out beyond its walls and judgment calls. But it does end, faster than we expect, and your life just spreads out before you, ready and pliant. That’s a nice thought.
