Glee's Chris Colfer Speaks Out Against LGBT Teen Suicide
"Glee" star Chris Colfer joins the leagues of Nicki Minaj and Ciara on the list of celebrities speaking out about the recent increase in LGBT teen suicides.
Colfer, who plays the Gaga and Britney-loving Kurt Hummel on the hit Fox show, recorded this PSA for the Trevor Project, encouraging LGBT teens who feel overwhelmed or depressed to call for help. When the cast of "Glee" visited "The Oprah Winfrey" show last season, Colfer admitted that he was bullied every day at school. He shares that empathy with LGBT teens in his suicide prevention commercial.

"I know what it's like to be bullied and teased every single day, and I know that it may seem like there is no chance of happiness left," says Colfer. "But I promise you, there is a world full of acceptance and love just waiting for you to find it."
The Trevor Project is a toll-free, confidential 24/7 hotline for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth.
