‘It gets better’ folks turn lenses on LGBT politics
SEATTLE, WASHINGTON: According to a statement released by the men who produced ‘it Gets Better’, a new project is in the works that will openly examiner how openly-gay politicians get ready for a seat of power and inside elections.
“This is uncharted territory,” said Savage. ”We’re seeing progress on LGBT issues, but in order to effect real change, representation in government is essential.”
“Aspiring LGBT candidates face a unique set of hurdles on the way to political office. The goal of this project is to follow a number of LGBT political candidates, and highlight Victory’s groundbreaking approach to helping them win,” said Savage.
