Texas Rangers: Make an "It Gets Better" video!

Will the Texas Rangers 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 Rangers are going to follow their lead.

The Rangers can help lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth understand that suicide is not the answer to their pain. The Rangers are real heroes to many people in Texas and have a voice. Please use that voice to let LGBT kids know that suicide is not an option that over time "It Gets Better"

      As a kid, my favorite memories with my dad were always going to Arlington Stadium to watch the Rangers play. As an adult and a lesbian, I know how much it would have meant to me when I was younger to see my role models telling me that it was okay, that there was nothing wrong with me and that I should never have, even for a moment, contemplated killing myself because of who I am.

      I would love for this to happen, as a lesbian that contemplated suicide after bullying, as somebody who grew up in Dallas and as a lifetime Texas Rangers fan.

      A baseball team of the Rangers' caliber has the potential to make an incredible impact on young people who justifiably admire them and communicate to the public that real men, true sportsmen, do not bully other people.
