San Francisco 49ers Make The First NFL "It Gets Better" Video

Another step in the right direction.  It's always wonderful for struggling LGBT youth to see their sports heros and other role models speak out in their support for gay rights and speak out against bullying.

Via The Advocate:

The San Francisco 49ers have become the first NFL team to make an It Gets Better video featuring multiple players.

Safety Donte Whitner, linebacker Ahmad Brooks, and defensive tackles Ricky Jean Francois and Isaac Sopoaga appear in the video, voicing support and encouragement for LGBT young people.

“The San Francisco 49ers are proud to join ItGetsBetter.org, to let all LGBT teens know that it gets better,” Whitner says. “On behalf of the entire 49ers organization, we are on your side, and we promise it gets better.”
