Phillies Will Finally Make It Better

In response to my scathing editorial regarding the lack of good news on the local LGBT/pro sports front (while other teams' current and former players support marriage equality and other cities' MLB teams make "It Gets Better" videos, Philly teams have done nothing and DeSean Jackson drops anti-gay slurs on radio), the Phillies have committed to making an "It Gets Better" video to help stop bullying.

Okay, it really had more to do with the "Ask the Phils to make an It Gets Better video" petition gaining publicity via a mass email from Change.org after Jackson's idiocy became known, and Philadelphia Weekly's adding to that publicity by profiling the petition's creator, followed by (I assume) the PW writer asking the Phils for a response, which led to the Phillies finally joining the cause -- as I explained in this blog post on Outsports.com. Still, I'm happy that it's finally going to happen.

Now, can we get the Flyers to do so as well?
