Warren Releases Clip for the 'It Gets Better' Campaign


Harvard Law School professorĀ Elizabeth Warren released a clip for the "It Gets Better Project" on Jan. 25, standing in support of LGBT youth who face bullying and discrimination.

Warren released the video as part of her senatorial campaign against current Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown. In July, Brown stirred controversy when he declined to participate in an "It Gets Better" video filmed by the entire Massachusetts Congressional delegation, of which he is the only Republican member.

Warren has voiced support for gay rights in the past, urging for the repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act,Ā a federal law that defines marriage as a legal union between a man and a woman.

While Brown is opposed to the repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act, in December 2010 he voted in support of ending the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy, which barred gay members of the armed forces from disclosing their sexuality. "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" was subsequently repealed, a vote that was seen as a huge win for the LGBT community.
