Equality PA challenges Phillies and Pirates to create “It Gets Better” videos

Last week, EQPA challenged the Phillies and the Pirates to create “It Gets Better” videos.

They would be joining the San Francisco Giants, the Chicago Cubs, and the Boston Red Sox who have already stepped up to the plate and agreed to make videos. When you have two such great teams in one state why shouldn’t we make the pitch, and you can help.

Take a minute today to encourage the Boys of Summer to make a video. Tell them this is important and that strong public support like this is crucial to letting LGBT teens know that it gets better.

Since the beginning of this project, tens of thousands of personal videos have been recorded offering hope to vulnerable teens and over 350,000 people have pledged their support to end hate and intolerance. We think it’s time for our baseball heros to join this effort.

Call the Philadelphia Phillies (215-463-6000) and the Pittsburgh Pirates (412-323-5000 – CHOOSE EXT. 8) and ask them to speak up for LGBT teens and make an “It Gets Better” video!

And while you’re at it, write them a message on Facebook or on Twitter, and make a request there too!
