SURE IT DOES

“It Gets Better” Sounds Weird Coming From Major League Teams With No Out Players

The Boston Red Sox just made an It Gets Better video. Awesome. No really, that’s awesome. Our community and queer youth need all the support they can get. There’s even a player in this video who says he got therapy to come to terms with who he is. But he doesn’t say that he’s gay. Then it hit me—no one in the pro-sports world has publicly come out as gay. So isn’t a weird when all these pro athletes tell queer kids it’s OK to be who they are when none of them are willing to do it themselves?
