Last month thousands of Giants fans joined Sean Chapin in asking asking the Giants to make an It Gets Better video. The baseball team was already planning on making a video, expedited their production and on the first day of LGBT Pride Month became the first professional sports team to tell LGBT youth that “It Gets Better.”
Giants players Matt Cain, Sergio Romo, Andres Torres and Barry Zito join Giants hitting coach Hensley “Bam Bam” Muelens in delivering the “It Gets Better” message in English, Spanish and Japanese.
Here’s some of the great coverage and fan reactions:
