'It Gets Better': MTV Orders Second Special With Dan Savage

MTV is casting a follow-up to its "It Gets Better" special, featuring LGBTQ journalist and activist, Dan Savage, who co-created the It Gets Better Project.

Though MTV has yet to release an official announced about the second "It Gets Better" special, a casting post on the network's website reads:

MTV is casting for another acclaimed "It Gets Better" special. We are looking for people who appear to be 15-25, and want to share their stories and experiences about growing up LGBT.

MTV and Logo joined forces with Savage for the first hour-long "It Gets Better" special, which aired on Feb. 21, 2012.

The program focused on the emotional and societal struggles facing lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth, taking viewers inside the personal struggles of three young people coming to terms with their sexual orientation and gender identity. The first "It Gets Better" special also featured video messages from Maroon 5's Adam Levine, Zachary Quinto, Margaret Cho, Chaz Bono and "Jersey Shore" star Vinny Guadagnino.

Savage and his husband, Terry Miller, founded the It Gets Better Project in the fall of 2010 in response to the increasing number of suicides among teenagers who were being bullied, often because they were LGBT or suspected to be.

Currently, there's no word who will make appearances this time around or when the second "It Gets Better" special will air.
