As of late, the plight of LGBT individuals has come heavily to the surface of our society through both tragedy and triumph. Many people, both famous and not, have begun speaking out the message of "It Gets Better". A project begun in 2010 by Dan Savage after the suicide of Billy Lucas. Unfortunately, Mr. Lucas hasn't been the only one driven to that extreme by the state things have fallen into.
In an unprecedented move, Major League Baseball's San Francisco Giants have recorded their own It Gets Better message, and supporters of LGBT rights from coast to coast, border to border and beyond have begun writing to their teams asking them to follow suit. On June 3rd, the Chicago Cubs & on June 4, 2011 the Boston Red Sox have both announced that they too will create this video as well. This petition is for all fans, home or away, of MLB's New York Mets and indeed all of baseball, imploring the Amazin's to stand up for what's right, and let it ring loud and clear from Queens to all areas across our country and around the world that "It Gets Better"!
