    Wanted to share my flag football league's (DC) version of It Gets Better. I thought the boys did an excellent job.

    that was beautiful. thank you for the effort in creating and sharing it.

    so many voices add to the choir of our shared humanity, but like a choir, the true impact is best heard and seen, not just told. this brought tears to my normally arid eyes. well done. may it continue to reach those who need to see it most.

    namaste.

    Um. Did you ever think that someone else would have the same thought? Start it up. A pick-up game advertise on craigslist (it's not just for hook-ups anymore) and to your friends, on facebook, etc. Meet up once a week, every week and after you have picked up enough people, start thinking about a league.

    Actually, seems that already exists. Google, what can't it do?

    Good one, but still - those movies don't help, at least when for me. All situations are different...

    Very true - all situations are different. Hopefully this gets through to at least some of those who are watching. If so, I'll be happy.

    Awesome video dude! Love the unintentional shout-out to my school (UK) that you made icon_cool.gif

    I liked to see an "It Gets Better" video like this, because it's one showing gay men participating actively and wholeheartedly in an activity that one typically doesn't associate with the gays. I think that in-and-of-itself makes a bit of a statement. Way to break the mold dude.


    In the next city or area I move to, I'm really hoping to be able to find some kind of gay sports league that I can be a part of. It seems like it would be a blast!

    ...how is it possible that I fell in love seven times in seven minutes?
    Please, please God, send me just one-tenth of one percent of the exceptional man in any one of these men.
    Wow. You all are my heroes.
