GET THE FIRST LOOK AT MTV AND LOGO'S "IT GETS BETTER" SPECIAL, PREMIERING TOMORROW, OCTOBER 9 AT 11:00 PM ET/PT

New York, NY (October 8, 2012) - MTV and Logo's 60-minute "It Gets Better" special premieres tomorrow night, October 9 at 11:00 P.M. ET/PT on both networks, two days ahead of National Coming Out Day.

Dan Savage, syndicated columnist, author, and co-creator of the It Gets Better Project, anchors the special, sharing the powerful and inspirational stories of Natalie, Hunter and Vecente, three young people growing up LGBT. Natalie was a star in her small town's conservative high school, but made herself sick with feelings of overwhelming shame and isolation that stemmed from being attracted to other girls. Now a college sophomore, she's ready to sit her family down and tell them that she's proud to finally be open about who she is, in hopes they will accept her. Hunter, a young man who just graduated high school, is thrilled to move away from home, but is nervous about having to experience the coming out process again and tell his three male roommates he is gay. Vecente, a hip-hop artist, decides he can no longer hide his sexual orientation from his best friend of 19 years and heads to New York to tell him, hoping he will be accepted as an openly gay artist.

To sound off on Twitter and Facebook, use the official hashtag #ItGetsBetter and visit the "It Gets Better" Facebook page, here. You can also find more on the show at MTV.com.

The It Gets Better Project was recently honored by The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Board of Governors with its prestigious Governors Award during the 2012 Creative Arts Emmy(R) Awards. At the same ceremony, the first "It Gets Better" special from MTV and Logo was nominated for an Emmy(R) in the Outstanding Children's Nonfiction, Reality or Reality-Competition Program category.

Savage and his producing partner Brian Pines of Hypomania Content are executive producers of the "It Gets Better" special, along with Ted Skillman and Belisa Balaban of Snackaholic Inc., as well as John Ferriter for Octagon Entertainment. Shannon Fitzgerald and Christy Spitzer are executive producers for MTV, with Tamar Zohar and Brittany Lutz serving as executives in charge of production for the network. The "It Gets Better" special is produced by MTV, Hypomania Content, Octagon Entertainment and Snackaholic Inc.
