That was stunningly awesome. Thanks so much for posting. So much love in that video, I wasn't expecting to get choked up the way I did. Now I want to hang out at Pixar even more.

I wish I could be half as awesome as I'd need to be to work at Pixar.

I love you, too, Pixar.

(God, I wish I had It Gets Better ten years ago.)

Man, that video is totally gay. And totally awesome.

This is SO great. I got choked up too. It's wonderful to see a big, popular, rich, successful company so willing to take a responsible, powerful role..

Thank you for posting this. I have watched a lot of the It Gets Better videos, but this one made me cry much more. I love Pixar soooo much and love them for making this.

Hey, BP, it would be cool to post this on the blue, don't you think? This is great.

Yes, thanks BoPo. That was fantastic. I'm so glad I saw it.

It was pretty dang awesome, I think Miko nailed it, but wasn't there already an 'it gets better' thread on the blue recently?

Awesome. Just ... awesome.

That's good.

There's so much information available on the internet that may provide comfort for socially (family wise) secluded teens.
I sometimes wonder what it would have been like if I'd had something like ask.mefi to hear from people from different age groups (older) giving advice from experience. I think that would have prevented me from getting into some life cul de sacs.

Also this made muse about the things that don't get better.
I think those exist but that it's too soul destroying to contemplate which things that are.

Has there been a gay character in a pixar film? I can't remember.

Seconding Sil exactly.

I'm supposed to be homeworking, so I didn't look carefully, but it looks like they have a short called "Day and Night" that might have gay characters. Wikipedia says they're owned by Disney and were owned by Steve Jobs.

That was like a hug! Now I want to hug everyone!

Damn. I cannot listen to this until I get home. Sent it to my wife, though.
