Michael Kors On Being Gay: I Was Called Every Name Growing Up (VIDEO)

Michael Kors is the newest member of the fashion community to record a message for the "It Gets Better" campaign by The Trevor Project for struggling LGBT youth. He tells the camera, "When I was growing up I heard every name called to name it." He said as a gay youth, "You feel different. You really feel different, you don't fit in. You are different. But you know what? Different will turn out to be a great thing for you," adding, "If I was like everybody else, I couldn't do what I do. I couldn't be Michael Kors."

Tim Gunn also recorded a message for the same campaign. Check out his video here.
