Adam Lambert’s It Gets Better video has just passed one million views since being posted online less than a year ago. Adam made and released his It Gets Better video last October. The video sends a strong, positive message to LGBT youth by encouraging them to be who they are and not be bullied, because otherwise the bullies win.
A clip of Adam’s video was shown on television in May, when an ad for Google Chrome browser featuring the It Gets Better project debuted on Fox television during an episode of Glee. The ad promoted the project and included snippets from various celebrity “It Gets Better” videos, including the one made by Adam.

It Gets Better is a project aimed at LGBT youth to show them that despite being bullied at a young age, it will get better for them in the future. A benefactor of the It Gets Better Project is The Trevor Project, which provides resources to end suicide among LGBT youth.
Adam recently supported The Trevor Project by donating a portion of the proceeds from a special version of one of his songs. He released a “Billboard Remix” of Aftermath, a song he co-wrote for his debut album. Adam talked about how the song is similar to the It Gets Better message in an interview with KIIS FM:
“This song really speaks to that same issue – the It Gets Better thing – having that faith in yourself and the pride to just be who you are.”
