Happy Pride Month! To celebrate, Uber Los Angeles is teaming up with the It Gets Better Project to support and raise funds for LGBT youth. The It Gets Better Project’s mission is to communicate to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth around the world that it gets better, and to create and inspire the changes needed to make it better for them. In September 2010, syndicated columnist and author Dan Savage created a YouTube video to inspire hope for young people facing harassment. In response to a number of students taking their own lives after being bullied in school, they wanted to create a personal way for supporters everywhere to tell LGBT youth that, yes, it does indeed get better. From June 12-14, request the PRIDE option and Uber Los Angeles will donate $1 to the It Gets Better Project. It is as simple as that!
