Video: Orioles speak out against bullying of LGBT youth

July 27, 2011|By Matt Vensel

Kudos to the Orioles for jumping on board with the It Gets Better Project and the Trevor Project, which bring awareness to the bullying of LGBT youth, by releasing a video featuring Jake Arrieta, Jason Berken, Zach Britton, Kevin Gregg and Michael Gonzalez that encourages victims of bullying to hang in there.

“The Orioles are proud to support the It Gets Better Project and the Trevor Project,” Orioles Director of Communications Greg Bader said in a statement. “Bullying of any kind, for any reason, is unacceptable to our organization, and we are pleased to have our players speak out against this behavior in the hope it will provide encouragement to LGBT youth, and all children, who are facing hatred and prejudice.”

I’d comment about how bullying in the AL East seems to be acceptable to the Orioles, but now is not the time.

The Orioles are one of several Major League Baseball teams that have released videos for the It Gets Better Project and the Trevor Project. That video is below, and you can see more videos at this link.
