The RCMP is the latest group to create a video in the “It Gets Better” theme — aimed primarily at youth. Championed by the Surrey RCMP Youth Unit, the 20 participants taped interviews in the summer of 2012. The video was finalized, by BC RCMP Multi-media services in the fall of 2012.
The video features adults who share their stories of their struggles, with the aim of building a bridge of understanding for youth undergoing similar experiences. Each of the participants tell moving and candid stories of their doubts, fears, and struggles, and their eventual joy of knowing that life, indeed, does get better.
Support for the project was received from police officers and civilian employees across the Lower Mainland of British Columbia including Surrey, Burnaby, UBC, Richmond, the Integrated Homicide Investigations Team, BC RCMP Major Crime, and the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit — BC (CFSEU-BC).
While their individual stories vary the messages are personal, powerful and inspiring.

While there’s no actual “sex” in this promo clip, the popular daytime soap-series are pushing their boundaries by airing an intimate encounter between two male characters. Sonny and Will take their relationship to the next level on the Nov. 14 episode. It’s interesting to note, this video has already been flagged by the YouTube as “age-restricted” based on community guidelines. Its quite obvious the restrictions would not have been put in place had the scene involved two people of the opposite sex…. once step forward, two steps back. Thoughts?
After a full day of recovery from all that monster juice I think it’s safe to say this past weekend was a fright to remember! I don’t know if the anticipation leading up to, or the actual party was more exciting?! Although when I walked into the club as a ‘regular’ patron I pretty much exploded in excitement…
This is the first year I’ve gotten experience a Lavish Halloween (as a guest) in full force! The game plan was fully laid out and my team did an amazing job executing the coveted weekend! Thanks to everyone who dressed up, brought the spirit, ate all the candy & danced like we’re gonna die young! (a shout out to DJ Pablo Ramirez for a perfect monster mash up)
A HUGE thank you also goes out to the staff, entertainers, TMA bloggers for seamlessly orchestrating your own piece, and to the photography team for capturing all the awesome memories.
You know… the best part about my job is when I’m out and about in the city and when LAVISH happens to come up in conversation, 9/10 times folks mention how friendly, open, happy & diverse the clientele are. So thank YOU all so much for bringing the party, the positive vibes, opening up your hearts up and allowing us to penetrate you with all we got!
The weekend is over but the party in still continuing tomorrow night for CAMEO All Ages Halloween. There will be a 19+ drinking section in the lounge and the dance floor will be for all ages with many local entertainers. Thanks in advance for letting us share the space with the many LGBTQ youth. It is a very special night for them.
