SF Spikes Gay Soccer Team Get Hands On With “It Gets Better” Video


We’ve seen hundreds of It Gets Better videos—from local activists, celebrities, politicians, and everyday folks. But this one, made by the San Francisco Spikes really spoke to us.

First of all, we think soccer players are among the cutest of all sports players. They always show their legs and they don’t wear a ton of padding to hide their fine form.

Secondly, we were always picked last in gym class (shocking but true) so knowing that some of our gay sisters haven’t remained eternally scarred by team athletic sports gives us hope.

And lastly, it actually suggests a way some LGBT youth can make it better for themselves: find a surrogate family of people with a similar interest (in this case, soccer).

Go Spikes!

    I was always picked last for soccer. Even behind the fat kids. I just hung out with the other queer kids and choreographed dance routines to Madonna songs.

    So, are beards compulsory to play for the San Francisco Spike?
    Just a cute coincidence that all the guys in the video have facial hair… and of course, are all cute.
