Ask the Toronto Blue Jays to make an It Gets Better video

Historically, Major League Baseball has been a leader in social change from civil rights and raising awareness on Jackie Robinson Day to Pink Bats and Breast Cancer Awareness.

It is time for Major League Baseball players to speak out against homophobia and anti-gay bullying.  The San Francisco Giants have committed to being the first team in professional sports to make an It Gets Better video.  Our beloved Toronto Blue Jays should be next!

Everyone deserves to be respected for who they are. Let's ask baseball players to spread the message and provide hope for lesbian, gay, bi, trans and other bullied teens by letting them know that "It Gets Better."

The Toronto Blue Jays are our heroes and our role models. Please ask them to be GAME-CHANGERS!

-- Alisa Gayle (Blue Jays fan, fitness instructor and musician)

      As I enjoy watching you play ball I see a group of men who enjoy playing the game, appreciate shared skills,the comraderie, the athleticism and especially support for each other on days when winning didn't happen. Good for you. NOW - join other teams and stand up to the plate against anti-homophobic words, actions, attitudes. It gets better when we stand together against such bullying. Elizabeth L

      If the Maple Leafs could come through with support for Breakfast with Scott, the Jays can do this!

      Your principles should be as admirable as your athleticism.
