Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has joined the chorus of public leaders offering support for gay teenagers who are suffering from bullying.
She posted a message on YouTube Wednesday, saying she is saddened by the recent uptick in suicides among gay teens. In her message, Clinton says that it shows our nation needs to work harder to overcome bigotry and hatred.
"I have a message for all the young people out there who are being bullied, or who feel alone and find it hard to imagine a better future: hang in there and ask for help. Your life is so important," Clinton said.
Clinton also says she is "grateful every day" for the work of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees at the State Department.
She points out that those people overcame discrimination, and promises victims of bullying that things "will get better."
