Seattle's four sports teams have joined forces to create an It Gets Better video.

The Mariners, Seahawks, Sounders and Storm backed the campaign that originated in Seattle by releasing a 60-second video on Friday.

The video features Brandon League and Brendan Ryan of the Mariners, Mike Williams of the Seahawks, Mike Fucito and Roger Levesque of the Sounders and Lauren Jackson and Swin Cash of the Storm.

“Anyone who's ever been bullied because of their sexual identity, race, disability – whatever the reason – it gets better,” Ryan, who plays shortstop, says in the video. (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.)

Prominent Seattleite Dan Savage, a gay activist, sex advice columnist and Rick Santorum agitator, founded the It Gets Better Project to reach out to troubled LGBT teens who may be considering suicide because they feel alone or are being bullied or harassed at school. The videos offer a simple message: Hang in there because life gets better.

In June, the San Francisco Giants became the first professional sports team to endorse the campaign.
