Remember what it was like growing up “different”? (Sigh) Well, here’s our chance to make it a bit easier for teens that are going through the same thing we did.
BALIF is putting together our very own “It Gets Better” video and is soliciting your help. We’re seeking inspiration, courage, and the offer of hope. We want to hear from you if you have a unique story or message about your coming-out and entry into the legal profession. Extra points for BALIF members who:
1. Entered the legal profession to “fight back”, as a result of bullying they personally suffered or witnessed;
2. Entered the legal profession specifically to fight for LGBT rights;
3. Are members of minority groups; or
Lawyers, legal professionals, judges, in-house counsel, and students are all welcomed. Videotaping is tentatively scheduled for Wednesday evening (2/16) and Saturday afternoon (2/19). Please be available on one of those two dates.
We’d love to hear from you if you’d like to participate in the video. Or if you’re camera shy, you can still help us out with this project behind the scenes. Please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
