The NOH8 Campaign on Thursday released two videos featuring prominent celebrities talking about gay bullying.

The videos support The Trevor Project, the California-based non-profit that runs the nation's only 24-hour, toll-free suicide hotline for gay and questioning youth. The group has received nationwide attention following the launch of sex advice columnist and activist Dan Savage's It Gets Better Project, a collection of inspiring videos that lets troubled gay teens know that it gets better and urges them to call The Trevor Project for help.

“How serious is bullying?” asks rocker Gene Simmons.

“Bullying has led to an epidemic of LGBT teen suicides that has sent shockwaves through the community,” Jeff Probst, host of CBS' Survivor, says.

“What's convincing these kids that things won't get better?” Simmons asks.

Laws that legislate discrimination “teach bullies that what they are doing is acceptable,” Probst answers.

“Our government treats the LGBT community like second class citizens, why shouldn't they?” Cindy McCain, wife of Arizona Senator John McCain, who opposes repeal of “Don't Ask, Don't Tell,” says. (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.)

The NOH8 Campaign, which is best known for raising funds and awareness to defeat Proposition 8, is helmed by photographer-activist Adam Bouska and his partner Jeff Parshley.

The group's iconic photographs feature celebrities and everyday folks with their mouths duct taped and the campaign's familiar “NOH8” slogan often written on one cheek.

The second video stars Tori Spelling, Kirsten Vangsness and Pauley Perrette.
