Petitioning Pirates' Manager of Diversity Initiatives Chaz Kellem and 3 others

Ask the Pittsburgh Pirates to make a video for the "It Gets Better Project"


We are asking the Pittsburgh Pirates to take a public stance against the bullying of LGBTQ youth in our community and across the nation.  The Pirates have hosted "Pride Night at PNC" park going back to 2004 and have embraced and treated respectfully the local LGBTQ community.

This step builds on that foundation to send a message to all fans that the team recognizes the damage of bullying.

The Pirates have agreed to consider this request. We are asking for more signatures to urge them to film this video during the off season.
