Watch the video now:

The cast of the Priscilla Queen Of The Desert The Musical, which opened its smash hit North American debut engagement at The Princess of Wales Theatre in Toronto to rave reviews last week, have joined forces in support of The Trevor Project’s “It Gets Better” campaign with a specially produced video sharing their experiences with bullying and being gay.

The Trevor Project is the leading national organization focused on crisis and suicide prevention efforts among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth. Every day, The Trevor Project saves young lives through its free and confidential helpline, in-school workshops, educational materials, online resources and advocacy. The organization was founded in 1998 by three filmmakers whose film, “Trevor,” a comedy/drama about a gay teenager who attempts suicide, received the 1994 Academy Award® for Best Short Film (Live Action).
