As a straight person who completely supports LGBT rights, I also understand how it feels to be bullied. I was bullied in school as a child, and to this day (I'm in my 40s now), it still prays on my mind. I think it is a wonderful idea to do this video to teach others that bullying someone, no matter what they are, is wrong and painful. The Pirates would have my respect if they go forward with this project, and I live in Phillies territory!

Sue Kerr, please change "bully." into "bullying." at the end of the first paragraph in your petition letter. We don't want to look silly. Even throwing an "a" would help. Thanks.

As a teen who was personally ridiculed for my 'bisexual' sexual orientation throughout high school, I feel as though it is important for other people in the LGBTQ community to know that, one day, it does get better. Life is amazing, you just have to make it there.
As a team full of people who are in the public eye, you have an amazing position where you can actually make a difference in so many people's lives, and so I'm asking you, not only as a member of the LGBTQ community, but also as a Pirates fan who was born, and raised, in Pittsburgh, to please take advantage of this opportunity and make a video.
It will say so much to so many people.
