It Gets Better Projecthttp://www.itgetsbetter.org

The It Gets Better Project wants to remind teenagers in the LGBT community that they are not alone — and it WILL get better.
The Pansy Projecthttp://www.thepansyproject.com
Artist Paul Harfleet plants pansies at the site of homophobic abuse, he finds the nearest source of soil to where the incident occurred and generally without civic permission plants one unmarked pansy. The flower is then photographed in it's location and posted on this website, the image is entitled after the abuse.
This simple action operates as a gesture of quiet resistance, some pansies flourish and others wilt in urban hedgerows. The artist began by planting pansies to mark his own experience of homophobia on the streets of Manchester (UK) though he plants pansies for others both on an individual basis and as part of various festivals and events.
