Elizabeth Warren, the leading Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate in Massachusetts and strong supporter of equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people, draws on her personal experiences as a teacher in this new It Gets Better video.

Professor Warren introduces her video with this message on her Facebook page:

MA has been the nation’s leader in protecting and promoting equality, but there’s more to do. Speak out against bullying this No Name Calling Week. Watch our new It Gets Better video and remember: you are not alone, there are people who love you, and if it feels too hard, you can call the Trevor Project at 866-4-U-TREVOR (866-488-7386).

Last summer the entire Massachusetts Congressional delegation — minus Sen. Scott Brown (R) — posted an It Gets Better message of encouragement and support for LGBTQ youth.

Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick has announced that today is “No Name Calling Day” in the Bay State.
