It is getting better!
We loved the San Francisco Giants "It Gets Better" PSA and we are happy to hear the Chicago Cubs will be the next major league team to produce a similar video.
The teams owner, Laura Ricketts, said in a statement:
"The Cubs applaud the Giants for their stand against anti-LGBT bullying. Bullying of anyone for any reason is unacceptable. We are proud to join the Giants in taking a stand against bullying and encourage other professional sports organizations to do the same."
The baseball club is no stranger to the LGBT community either and has actually been supporting it for years.
In 2001, the Cubs hosted the first Out At The Ballgame event, now called Out At Wrigley, which draws thousands and has also donated plenty of money to charity organizations benefiting the LGBT community. The team even has a float in the city's annual Pride Parade!
We'd like to thank the Cubs for their continued support of equality and can't wait to see the team join the "It Gets Better" campaign.
