“Mitt Gets Worse” — LGBT voices against the candidate

“Mitt Gets Worse” — LGBT voices against the candidate


I’m sure you remember the phenomenally successful viral campaign, “It Gets Better”, in which both gay and straight people told stories of adult acceptance to try to give hope to bullied gay teens.

Well, in this United States Presidential Election year, LGBT activists have started a new campaign aimed at the Republican candidate’s anti-gay stance: Mitt Gets Worse.

Named after Republican candidate Mitt Romney, the campaign site states:

Romney has earned a reputation as a flip-flopper — changing his positions in whatever direction advances his career. But when it comes to LGBT issues, there’s one thing you can always count on: Mitt Gets Worse.

Year after year, Mitt has moved further and further toward the extreme right. The Mitt Gets Worse campaign is an oral history of Mitt Romney’s efforts to diminish the rights and the freedoms of LGBT Americans, told by supporters, activists, and LGBT advocates that have personally been impacted by Mitt’s anti-equality agenda.

See one such video, by American stage actor Anthony Rapp (of “Rent” fame), after the break.
