In the wake of Tyler Clementi's heartbreaking suicide, the problem of anti-gay teen bullying has gotten a lot of attention over the last week. One of the projects that has been thrust into the spotlight is Dan Savage's "It Gets Better," which aims to show gay teens that life does, in fact, get a lot better after high school. In the last few days, videos have been posted by everybody from Ciara to Sia to a large group of San Franciscans, but one of the most moving so far comes from "Project Runway" mentor (and our favorite scold) Tim Gunn. Watch it below.
