America fell in love with Tim Gunn on Project Runway, and he’s been a media fixture ever since the show launched. Now, Gunn is using his celebrity to reach out to gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered and questioning teens.
Gunn filmed a PSA for the Trevor Project, a suicide prevention hotline for young people struggling with their sexuality and learning to be themselves. Gunn’s PSA also references Dan Savage’s “It Gets Better” project, in which celebs and plebs can create and share videos that send messages of support to young people who are being bullied because of their sexuality or are simply looking for hope.
In the video, Gunn candidly discusses his suicide attempt and reveals how he recovered. Watch the video below:
