by thepleasurechest

This is cool! You’ve probably seen plenty of It Gets Better videos and many versions of the Shit People Say meme. But today, we came across two viral videos on the web that make a great double bill of inspiration for LGBTQ youth.

First up, young members of the Illinois Safe Schools Alliance record video messages for their 40 year-old selves. Then, watch members of the Canadian group Get Real send messages to their 7th grade selves.
