Giants to Create "It Gets Better" Video for LGBT Youth


​The San Francisco Giants told SF Weekly today that the team will make an iconic “It Gets Better” video to encourage LGBT youth across the nation. The Giants will be the first professional sports team to join the spirited campaign aimed at curbing LGBT bullying and teen suicides.

According to Staci Slaughter, spokeswoman for the Giants, the team was already considering creating a video even before the petition circulated last week, which requested that the Giants be the first sports team to join the campaign. More than 6,500 people have signed the petition. The It Gets Better Project started in 2010 after a slew of LGBT suicides across the nation. Since then, thousands of ordinary people, celebrities, and politicians have made videos.

“Details of the video are still being worked out so I can’t provide you with specifics,” Slaughter told SF Weekly in an e-mail today. “But we are confirmed to produce and post a video.”

Nicely done, Giants. Nicely done.
