Senator Scott Brown is the only member of the Massachusetts congressional delegation missing from an It Gets Better video released on Wednesday.

A spokesman for the Republican senator told the Boston Globe that Brown was asked to appear in the video but declined.

“Scott Brown has a strong record at the state and federal level against bullying and believes that all people regardless of sexual orientation should be treated with dignity and respect,” Colin Reed told the paper. “His main focus right now is on creating jobs and getting our economy back on track.”

While Brown recently supported repeal of “Don't Ask, Don't Tell,” the policy banning gay and bisexual troops from serving openly that ends on September 20, he opposes gay marriage, and does not support repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which forbids federal agencies from recognizing the legal marriages of gay and lesbian couples.

In the 1-minute video, the 10 lawmakers who represent Massachusetts – including Senator John Kerry and Congressman Barney Frank – urge troubled LGBT teens considering suicide to hang in there.

“So it will get better,” Frank, who is openly gay, says near the end of the video. “It will get better because you're helping it become better. And this is going to be in the end the kind of world we all want to live in.” (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.)
