The Seattle Mariners, Seahawks, Sounders and Storm are sporting a new message, ‘It Gets Better.’

The teams worked together to produce a 1:00 minute Youtube video as part of the international campaign aimed at gay, lesbian and transgendered youth who may feel isolated, alone and bullied.

The ‘It Gets Better Project’ got its start right here in Seattle thanks to sex advice columnist Dan Savage and his husband Terry Miller who told their story in the first ‘It Gets Better’ video last fall.

The goal behind the project is for adults to share the simple message that despite tough times for many young people, life does get better.

The Mariners organization, which posted the new video on YouTube, said they did it to inspire hope for young people who may be struggling.
