Fort Worth, TX Councilmember Tells GLBT Kids “It Gets Better”

Joel Burns is my new hero. At this Tuesday’s Fort Worth City Council meeting, Burns used his platform as a councilmember to tell his story for the first time, and to express what he wished he was able to show all of the GLBT youth — and the 13-year old boy he once was — feeling hurt and alone out there. It’s truly touching and I just had to share. (It’s a long one but completely worth it.)

P.S. Take out your hankies.
