Gay Allies Boston Red Sox Speak OUT
Oakland A’s 9 to 8 the Boston Red Sox announced
they'll be the 3rd major pro sports team to make an
It Gets Better video in support of bullied LGBT youth.
The other teams are the San Francisco Giants & the
Chicago Cubs. This was after the effort of 12 year old
Sam Maden who started a petition asking the Red Sox
to make the video in honor of his deceased uncle.
Maden’s petition reached nearly 10,000 signatures.
The It Get Better project was started by Dan Savage to
fight anti-gay bullying, homophobia & to help bullied
LGBT youth hang in there because it does get better.
Dan Savage stated, “I’m thrilled by the participation of
the Giants, the Red Sox & the Cubs. But I don’t want the
excitement about each new high-profile It Gets Better
contribution to obscure the real heroes of the IGB
movement: the tens of thousands of average, ordinary
LGBT people out there. LGBT people of all ages, races,
faiths & backgrounds who are reaching out & speaking
to LGBT kids.” It’s great this announcement came as we
kick off a week of celebration for Boston Gay Pride.
