Video: Microsoft's GLEAM Says It Gets Better

Following in the footsteps of EA, Microsoft's GLEAM (Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Employees At Microsoft) has produced its own It Gets Better video. Kicking things off is Boris, Xbox Live's "Enforcement Unicorn Ninja," followed by a dozen or so of his coworkers, some newly out, a few with families and kids, and all with different stories to tell. One even met the love of her life while working at the company; it's just like a fairy tale, except with Zunes instead of talking animals.

Have to keep my laptop muted right now, so I won't know till the morning what they have to say beyond "Someday you may find yourself working for a company who'll kick you off their own service for making any reference to your sexual identity but also having to make a slick video saying how great it is to be gay and work there, but hey, at least you'd be right by the hippest city on the continent, and once you get used to the Freeze, it really gets better."

Boris is kind of cute, though.

Awesome! I am proud to say that Boris is a friend of mine and fellow gay gamer. We don't hang out often enough, but once we do, the conversations are all about the games we are playing and love.

And Raindog, didn't you hear? Microsoft changed their policy on XBL regarding sexual identity quite some time ago. It was reported right here on this site. But you must have missed or skipped over that article...

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
