Please sign this petition to get the New England Patriots to make an "It Gets Better" video in support of LGBTQ youth. This video series, started by Dan Savage, features adults explaining that life gets better when one grows up. The San Francisaco Giants just agreed to produce a video, and so should the Patriots. It is especially important, because they play in the first US state to allow same-sex marriage. They should be pioneers and patriots as their name implies.
