In a video for the It Gets Better campaign, personal finance guru Suze Orman says she's proud to be a lesbian.

“I am proud of my accomplishments,” Orman says in her video. “I am proud that I can stand in my truth and I am not afraid to tell anybody who I am.”

The sixty-year-old Orman adds that she knew her sexuality from day one.

“When I was born, I knew I was gay from day one, but there wasn't anyone to talk about it.”

“As every day passed, with everything that I did, I knew that if I was just willing to be who I am that the world would eventually change and accept people like me,” she says. “And look at me now.”

While conceding that gay teens face a steep incline, Orman adds: “Just stick with us. People are listening to you. People are supporting you. People want you to be who you are. … I am proud that I am a lesbian.” (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.)

The It Gets Better campaign is the brainchild of sex advice columnist and activist Dan Savage, who launched the project by uploading a video on YouTube.

Other celebrities and high-profile politicians who have created videos urging troubled gay teens to get help 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.
