The Philadelphia Phillies have released an It Gets Better video to help LGBT teens and all young people who may be facing bullying and harassment at school.
Starring pitchers Roy Halladay and Michael Stutes, outfielders Hunter Pence and John Mayberry Junior, and second baseman Chase Utley, the 30-second video affirms that the Phillies “are proud to join ItGetsBetter.org to let all LGBT young people know that life gets better,” that part of growing up is about self discovery and learning who you are, and that young people should never have to face bullying for this or any other reason.
The video closes with: “We promise it gets better.”
