“The Chicago Cubs organization celebrates you for exactly who you are, gay or straight,” says Quade. Ricketts, who is a lesbian, says, “We know it can get really tough. I’ve been there.”

The video ends by encouraging struggling youths to go to the It Gets Better website or call the Trevor Project’s suicide prevention hotline.

The San Francisco Giants were the first MLB team to make an It Gets Better video. TheBoston Red Sox and Seattle Mariners have videos in the works for the campaign, started last year by journalist-activist Dan Savage and his partner, Terry Miller. (via Advocate.com)
