Ever wish you could go back in time and give advice to your younger self, and maybe avoid some mistakes or awful things you said as a kid?

That's the premise behind "Year 7 Self," a new video from Minus 18, Australia's largest support network for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) teens.

The video features seven adults addressing their younger selves, expressing how saying things like "that's so gay" and bullying kids who may be different is not right because one day your brother or family member may come out to you, or your best friend might end up being gay.

A fresh, and personal perspective on the fight against bullying and homophobia, "Year 7 Self" is well worth the watch.
