The cast of the Broadway-bound musical Priscilla, Queen of the Desert is reaching out to troubled gay teens in an It Gets Better video.

The movie-turned-tuner, which will have its Broadway premiere in March after a brief stop in Toronto, follows three drag queens on a road trip through the Australian Outback.

In the video, Nick Adams, who plays the part of Adam/Felicia, says he grew up “feeling very frightened and alone because I was a young gay boy.”

After confessing that it's difficult to talk about his experience, Will Swenson (Tick/Mitzi) says he was bullied as kid: “I was sometimes physically assaulted – I had to fight my way out of things; I always won.” Swenson says the tormenting drove him to thoughts of suicide.

Being gay didn't trouble Tony Sheldon (Bernadette) as a child – “Everything was going to be lovely” – but the suicide of his father when Sheldon was 10 “broke” him and his mother. (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.)

The It Gets Better Project is the brainchild of sex advice columnist and activist Dan Savage, who launched the project by uploading a video on YouTube. The project urges gay teens considering suicide to get help.

Other celebrities and high-profile politicians who have created videos include President Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, New York Governor David Paterson, Fort Worth Councilman Joel Burns, rocker Adam Lambert and actor Neil Patrick Harris.
