As part of a widespread effort by entertainers, politicians, and everyday people to draw attention to the plight of homosexual teens who suffer from bullying, the Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles this week released a video of the talented ensemble performing Cyndi Lauper's "True Colors."

The "It Gets Better" campaign, which is part of the Trevor Project, is compiling videos made by gay men and women, or their allies, to provide troubled youth with a message of hope and positivity. Among those who have participated so far include Ellen DeGeneres, Tim Gunn, President Obama, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, among many, many more.

Check out's Gay Rights blog for their picks for the best celeb "It Gets Better" videos. Though not a video, LAist's own Sports Editor Jimmy Bramlett shared his thoughts following the suicides of a handful of bullied gay teens in his post "A Plea for Empathy."
