As part of an ongoing series of post, ‘Scene Yourself’ is my photographic take on the It Gets Better Project. I highlight photos of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) events for LGBT youth to get a visual sense of how it can get better for them and the possibilities that await for them in the future.

For this post, we have Matthew Phelps (no not that one) and Ben Schock. Phelps is a US Marine who proposed to his boyfriend Schock at the White House December 2013. The couple was married in spring 2013.
