Happy 58th Birthday to Tim Gunn!

http://www.fabulousafter40.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/02/tim-gunn.jpgOkay, I didn’t think it was very cool of Tim Gunn to go after Hillary Clinton’s fashion choices but I still want to wish him a happy 58th birthday.

He may not be getting a birthday card from the Secretary of State this year but Tim scored major points with me and a lot of others last year when he bravely opened up about his suicide attempt as a teenager in a video for Dan Savage’s It Gets Better Project.

He said in the video aimed at LGBT teens:

“As a 17-year-old youth who was in quite a bit of despair, I attempted to kill myself and I’m very happy today that that attempt was unsuccessful but at the time it’s all that I could contemplate. … I woke up the morning after taking over a hundred pills and I was in a whole other level of despair. I thought, ‘I shouldn’t be here. This isn’t what was meant to be.’ I frankly just wanted to start life all over again.”

“I understand the desperation, I understand the despair, and I understand how isolated you feel.”

Here is the video and here’s hoping Tim has a wonderful birthday:
