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!
