Ask the Chicago White Sox to Make an "It Gets Better" video



The San Francisco Giants have become the first professional sports team to make a video to make an "It Gets Better" video to help convey to gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and questioning teenagers and young adults that it does in fact get better. More than 10,000 "It Gets Better" videos have been made by public figures, organizations, and corporations to fight the epidemic of suicides by kids bullied for being gay or perceived to be gay. 

Will the Chicago White Sox join them?

Chicago is home to one of the largest gay communities in the United States. As an effort to bridge communities in Chicago, an "It Gets Better" video by members of the Chicago White Sox would show unity with their gay and lesbian fans. To have a strong message of respect and hope for GLBTQ youth from role models in the professional sports world would be admirable and immensely helpful.

Let's come together to strengthen our community and prove that it does, in fact, get better.
