NY Mets: Please make an It Gets Better video

      Babylon, NY

To promote a positive message fo LGBT youth and take a stand against bullying. Every day, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer children and teens are bombarded by images and messages that tell them who they are is not OK. They're more likely to be bullied at school than straight kids, and then the bullies' messages are too often reinforced by adults at home and in their communities. In the worse case this leads to young people feeling suicide is an answer. The "It Gets Better" video's are reaching out to change this. Let's go Mets! You can help this change!

      I've grown up with the Mets, have been a Met fan for 47 years, and it's time for the Mets to mature as well. Our society will take a significant step forward when male athletes and teams can acknowledge that homosexuality is no big deal, except in the eyes of the bigot, that there have been homosexual athletes as long as there have been athletes, and that bullying or ostracizing someone for their sexual orientation is not only morally wrong but undermines the social bonds necessary for society to function at its optimal level.
