Will the St. Louis Cardinals stand up against anti-gay bullying and homophobia in sports?

The San Francisco Giants have become the first pro sports team to create an “It Gets Better” video to stand up against the bullying of gay kids -- and now fans and the media are wondering if other baseball teams like the Cardinals are going to follow their lead.

These videos assure teens that being gay is not the end of the world and encourage them to live their lives to the fullest rather than resort to suicide as so many gay teens do.

The St. Louis Cardinals have one of the finest fan bases in all of Major League Baseball. I hope we can convince our Cardinals to make a great video to support LGBT kids.

      As a long time St. Louisan and fan of the Cardinals, I am requesting that you support our kids. I teach in the public school system and have seen the effects of bullying on our young people as they grow and learn about their sexuality. Please add your voices to the call for understanding, love and compassion for students and young adults who are gay, lesbian, bi-sexual or transexual.
