A Little Birdie Told Me — True Blood PSAs

New PSAs From True Blood For “It Gets Better”:

Welcome Truebies to the new column, “A Little Birdie Told Me”. Here I will write about what the True Blood cast members are up to, from what they put up on Twitter and Facebook. The Twitter and Facebook pages are verified by HBO so we know that it’s the real actors and crew members. I HOPE YOU ENJOY!

This first article is courtesy of Kristin Bauer van Straten, and The Trevor Project, “It Gets Better”. Kristin posted the PSA to her Facebook page. I also found that Alan Ball, Alexander Skarsgård, and Rutina Wesley all did their own PSAs. You can view them below:

Kristin talks about a troubled time in her life, and what got her through it. In her touching, tearful message, she says, “You just never know what’s around the corner. Just stick around and see. It gets better.”

Rutina urges:

“Remember — you’re perfect, just the way you are. And believe in yourself, ’cause I believe in you. And know that you’re worth it.”

In Alexander’s PSA, he asserts:

“Every single human being has equal value.”

Alan shares his experience with childhood bullying, and says:

“Being different is what makes you, ‘you’. And if you’re fully ‘you’, then nobody can hold you back.”
