Country music singer Chely Wright has recorded a video for Cyndi Lauper's Give a Damn campaign against homophobia.

The video is the latest from Lauper's True Colors Fund.

“I'm a Christian, I am gay, and I give a damn about equality,” the newly engaged Wright says in the one-minute-thirty-four-second video released late last week.

Wright, who came out lesbian last May, also talks about coming to terms with her sexuality.

“Coming out to the world and my family and friends was my path to freedom. And at the end of that, I found my music, my spirituality, and I found myself,” she says.

“Today, so many young people continue to face a world of uncertainty as they come to terms with their sexual orientation or gender identity. They face rejection by their family, by their friends. They face bullying in school and condemnation by their faith. They hide their true selves from everyone.”

It's time for a change, Wright says, then adds, “I give a damn. Do you?”

Other openly gay celebrities who have recorded similar videos for the campaign include singers Elton John and Ricky Martin, comedian Wanda Sykes and actress Meredith Baxter.
