Tim Gunn Admits He Attempted Suicide

In light of the recent news of the teen suicides in the U.S., many celebrities have stepped up to show their support for organizations like the Trevor Project.

Tim Gunn has made a video for the organization, recalling a time in his life when he didn’t want to go on. He says, "As a 17-year-old youth who was in quite a bit of despair, I attempted to kill myself and I'm very happy today that that attempt was unsuccessful but at the time it's all that I could contemplate."

He shares the message, "It gets better, it really does."

This isn’t the first time Gunn has been vocal about his struggle being a homosexual. In his book Gunn’s Golden Rules, he says he didn’t come out until his twenties.
