MTV (and Logo) will be showing  an all new, 60-minute IT GETS BETTER Special special tonight, October 9th  at 11 p.m. ET/PT, just two days ahead of National Coming Out Day.

In the less than two years, since the It Gets Better Project started it has turned into a worldwide movement, inspiring more than 50,000 user-created videos viewed more than 50 million times. To date, the project has received submissions from celebrities, organizations, activists, politicians and media personalities, including President Barack Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Adam Lambert, Anne Hathaway, Colin Farrell, Matthew Morrison of “Glee”, Joe Jonas, Joel Madden, Ke$ha, Sarah Silverman, Tim Gunn, Ellen Degeneres, Suze Orman, the staffs of The Gap, Google, Facebook, Pixar, the Broadway community, and many more.

The awesome and out spoken Dan Savage, columnist, gay activist, and co-creator of the It Gets Better Project, will once again anchor the special, which will share stories and experiences of young people who are growing up LGBT.

The first “It Gets Special” special premiered on MTV and Logo on Feb. 21, 2012 and can still be viewed on MTV.com.
