Video: U.S. Soldiers Make Pro-Gay Video for Teens

| by Michael Allen

Several active duty soldiers in Bagram, Afghanistan, recently made a video (below) that sends a message of tolerance to gay and bisexual teens who are being bullied.

The video is part of the 'It Gets Better' video series by OutServe, an LGBT support organization for U.S. soldiers.

“It’s really hard, being accepted, to be different,” one soldier explains. “But it’s even harder to be somebody that you’re not. So, once you find that group of friends that embrace who you are, just go with the flow. It gets better.”

The video features (in order of appearance): SSGT Steven Procter, SSGT Shelise Harmon, AT2 Erin Jones, SPC James Velazquez and SPC Curtis Robinson.
