The San Francisco Giants posted an “It Gets Better” video for LGBT teens today, becoming the first professional sports team to support the IGB movement. This is just one gesture in a long line of recent gestures by pro sports stars to publicly support LGBT rights.
Thousands signed a petition started started by SF gay activist and Giants fan Sean Chapin after he posted the below video on YouTube asking the team to make an IGB. A spokesman for team released a statement recently in response to Chapin’s petition saying the team had already been in talks to create a video.
