Video: It Gets Better: Stories from Nokia Employees

| August 17, 2011 | 28 Replies

Fresh on Nokia’s channel is a video about Nokia’s staff. You may recognize a few, one being Pino the Ovi Blog Editor (we’ve seen him on a few videos, and spoke to him on Ovi Map related events).

This is part of something called “It Gets Better”. Here’s a link the the site organizing this project.

Many LGBT youth can’t picture what their lives might be like as openly gay adults. They can’t imagine a future for themselves. So let’s show them what our lives are like, let’s show them what the future may hold in store for them.

I think I saw Stephen Fry make one video for this (at the time I thought he was talking about how Google Chrome gets better).

This is a video sharing the stories of Nokia employees, ” to provide hope for lesbian, gay, bi, trans and other bullied teens by letting them know that ‘It Gets Better’.”

Here’s a link to the Ovi Blog post.
