Founded by journalist Dan Savage and his partner, Terry Miller, in 2010, the It Gets Better Project provides hope, encouragement and community to millions of young LGBTQ+ people worldwide, promising that no matter how challenging their current situation, there is love, community, connection and freedom in the near future.  

From its inception as a social media campaign, the It Gets Better Project has grown to a multi-media platform and global movement. Through inspiring media programming, a network of international affiliates and access to community-based service providers, the It Gets Better Project fosters connection, empowerment and pride among lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth.  

“The It Gets Better Project envisions a world where all LGBTQ+ youth are free to live equally and know their worthiness and power as individuals.”

It Gets Better Project mission statement 

In honor of Pride Month, the LGBTQ+ members of our Aerie fam and their allies, we’re proud to support the It Gets Better Project with a donation of $50,000. And YOU can help!  

Your purchase = a donation on us. On June 10th, 2022, we’ll donate $1 from every Real Rewards purchase (up to $25,000) to the It Gets Better Project! As long as you’re a Real Rewards member, your in-store or online purchase of AE, Aerie, OFFL/NE™ by Aerie will contribute.  

How does your donation help? Last year, AE & Aerie’s donation helped fund the It Gets Better Project’s 50 States 50 Grants 5000 Voices grant program, which empowers students across the United States to make their schools more open and inclusive. This year, our donation will fund the 2023 grant program!

We’re sending you love, Aerie fam. This month – and every month – love yourself, love your Aerie fam and be proud of who you are. Tell us how you’re celebrating Pride Month in the comments – we want to hear from you!
