Obama to Gay Teens: 'You Are Not Alone'

President Obama is the latest celeb to reach out to gay teens by way of the "It Gets Better Project." In his video, Obama empathizes with bullied kids, saying that he knows "what it's like growing up feeling that sometimes you don't belong." Obama, addressing gay teens, says, "You are not alone. You didn't do anything wrong. You didn't do anything to deserve being bullied. And there is a whole world waiting for you, filled with possibilities."

"There are people out there who love you and care about you just the way you are. And so, if you ever feel like, because of bullying, because of what people are saying, that you're getting down on yourself, you've got to make sure to reach out to people you trust."
