Fort Worth Councilman Joel Burns and country music star Chely Wright appear in new PSA's for GLSEN.

The Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), which works to combat anti-gay behavior and bias in schools, recruited the gay celebrities to help pitch its Safe Space Campaign, which aims to place a GLSEN Safe Space Kit in every middle and high school in the country.

Burns, the openly gay councilman whose video of a recent speech on gay teens bullied to death at a city council meeting has gone viral on the Internet, says, “Every kid deserves a safe space in school,” in his video.

“When LGBT students know that they have somebody to turn to, they are less likely to skip school, they are able to learn and they won't give up,” Wright, who came out lesbian in an interview with People magazine in May, says in her video. (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.)

Wright's eighth studio album, Lifted Off The Ground, and a memoir titled Like Me coincided with her coming out.
