Giants Join the It Gets Better Project

In a video released by the San Francisco Giants today as part of the It Gets Better Project, Barry Zito, Matt Cain, Sergio Romo, Andres Torres and Bam Bam Meulens speak on behalf of the entire Giants organization to provide encouragement to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender teens.

The video acknowledges how difficult life can be for a teenager, and as Cain points out, “it’s particularly challenging for LGBT teens who face adversity and intolerance in their daily lives.”

The message makes clear that “there is no place in society for hatred and bullying against anyone,” or even for any child or teen to feel like they have to end their own life.

But even if “it seems hopeless,” as each player states, “It gets better.”

This is the latest show of support for the LGBT community from the Giants, who were the first organization to raise money and awareness on behalf of AIDS research when the team launched its annual “Until There’s a Cure” game in 1994.

Well done, Giants. Well done.
