“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)

” It Gets Better” Book Launch NYC; And the Fans Go Wild

by Accidental Bear

This is one of the many books I will be pushing in the near future. I fee old-school buying books. This digital world in which we live leaves me somewhat empty. I want to be able to hold the weight of a book in my hands, smell the fresh pressed paper. I want to be able to use it as a dinner tray at times. So, I say it can’t get any better than buying the real physical copy of whatever treasure you about about to unleash in those pages.
