Watch: Cindy McCain Speaks Out Against Bullying, DADT in New NoH8 Campaign Video

The Trevor Project has launched it's latest NoH8 Campaign video this week with a start-studded lineup that includes Kiss front man, Gene Simmons, Celebrity Rehab's Dr. Drew, Dancing With the Stars' Tom Bergeron, Ex-Mrs. Charlie Sheen Denise Richards and Survivor's Jeff Probst, to name a few. Perhaps the most notable famous face is that of John "Grumpy Old Man" McCain's wife Cindy, who took part in the NoH8 photo campaign last year with daughter Meaghan.

McCain takes on her husband and the conserva-tards, saying, “Our political and religious leaders tell LGBT youth that they have no future. They can’t serve our country openly.”

Other celebs add, “What’s worse, these laws that legislate discrimination teach bullies that what they’re doing is acceptable.” McCain says this adds to the self doubt and self-loathing queer kids may feel, and asks, “Our government treats the LGBT community like second class citizens, why shouldn’t they?”
You gotta love those McCain women.
