Phillies “It Gets Better” Video Released!!

True to their word, the Philadelphia Phillies released their “It Gets Better” video prior to their game this past Friday evening, which happened to be Gay Community Night at Citizens Bank Park (watch the video after the jump).

I can say it gives me great joy to see the Phillies do this video and have it debut on the Phanavision prior to the game.  As a life long Phillies Phan, I am proud that the Phillies are showing a commitment to their LGBT fans.  This success of the petition I started shows that everyday people like myself can do tremendous things that can have a positive impact.

Thank you Phillies for joining the It Gets Better Campaign and supporting the LGBT community!

Additionally, I am proud to report that the video as well as the story about the petition has been covered by Philadelphia Weekly and Philly.com.  Links are below to the stories.
