They’re not standing around the watercooler, but Cheryl Sadler, Mark Meszoros, Mark Podolski and Nicole Franz are talking about what they’ve been watching, listening to and playing during their free time.

Following a string of suicides that could be attributed to bullying (especially anti-gay bullying), relationship/sex advice columnist/podcaster Dan Savage and his partner launched a project called It Gets Better. They have invited other individuals to submit videos to talk directly to teens and share a simple message: It gets better. Dan and Terry's "It Gets Better" video can be viewed here.

(Note: I have not viewed all of the videos, and I'm sure some of them include potentially offensive language or dialogue. I think the project is a great idea and encourage people to watch some of the videos. I can't promise the content won't be offensive, but I'm guessing it won't be as bad as what some bullies are saying to LGBT high schoolers. Dan Savage's column and podcast, on the other hand, are for mature audiences only.)

Some submissions to the project have come from celebrities, including:

The project also has a Facebook page.
