Recently the San Francisco 49ers made an "It Gets Better" video to inform GLBT youth that despite hardships they may face now due to their sexual orientation, life does get better and it's alright to be who you are. You can view this important video here:

Let's tell the NFL that they should sponsor the airing of this video during the Super Bowl -- America's most-watched television event.

Last year 111.3 million people tuned in to watch this game. The NFL should sponsor the airing of this video because of the reach and impact it could have on millions of people - young and old – who will be watching.

The 49ers know that it gets better. And now the NFL should stand behind this team and support this message because it's the right thing to
do.

Signed,
