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

This second article is courtesy of True Blood’s official YouTube page.  Stephen Moyer, Anna Paquin, Nelsan Ellis, and Brit Morgan made “It Gets Better” PSAs for The Trevor Project. In these PSAs they talk about personal experiences with bullying.

Stephen Moyer’s message begins with:

“I’ve got two children who come home from school sometimes as if the world is at an end…”

Nelsan Ellis shares:

“I was talked about growing up because I was the odd kid, I was strange in my family and later in life I learned to embrace who I was and all of my differences because I realized they make me beautiful.”

Brit Morgan talks about being made fun of because of her medical condition:

“I totally know how you feel. I had a particular experience growing up. I had really, really severe scoliosis and I had to wear this back brace, I was really, really crooked, and I walked funny and had a hunch on my back. I remember being in middle school and I remember being in high school, and I remember how bad I used to get picked on.”

Anna Paquin says:

“The thing about bullying is that it makes you feel like you’re alone, it makes you feel like there’s something wrong with you. It makes you feel like you can’t go and talk to someone because they won’t understand… it gets better. It’s just as simple as that.”

Hey Truebies, if you feel picked on or alone and need help please call 1-866-4-U-TREVOR, or visit TheTrevorProject.org or GLSEN.org.
