It Gets Better: Sister Unity

Sex columnist and frequent MSNBC contributor Dan Savage has started the "It Gets Better Project" on YouTube and Facebook. It is designed to give desperate LGBT students hope. A sort of voice from their future. People recount their own bouts with homophobia, with the message that if you just hang on, life gets better.

A couple of my friends have recorded messages. I'm posting this one, tipped by Jeff, because Sister Unity Divine strikes such an imposing visual but the message is even more powerful. (Prince Poppycock from America's Got Talent reminds me of The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.)
