NFL’s 49ers release ‘It Gets Better’ video

“It Gets Better” aims to offer hope to LGBT youth who often feel isolated and alone in coming to terms with their sexuality. Formed by radio personality and author Dan Savage, the project has compiled thousands of videos featuring celebrities, politicians and every day people who understand the personal struggle in the wake of a series of high-profile LGBT youth suicides.

Catch the 49ers’ video below:

The 49ers kick off the 2012/13 season against the Green Bay Packers on Sept. 9 after a successful 2011/12 season which saw the team reach their division championship game.
