Conchita Wurst, winner of Eurovision 2014 and Austria’s Queen of Tolerance, has filmed a video for Es Wird Besser, the Austrian branch of the It Gets Better campaign, which works to tackle suicide among LGBT youth.
In the 20-second clip Conchita reminds youth—indeed, anyone struggling to be accepted—that loving yourself is the first step to freedom and fulfillment.
There may be people who won’t accept you. There may be even people who won’t accept you in your inner family, but you know what? The most important thing is that you accept yourself. And if so I can promise you it gets better.
