Gay American TV star Carson Kressley has written a new book, which he hopes will help sexually confused teenagers 'come out'.

The QUEER EYE FOR THE STRAIGHT GUY star admits he was a confused teen before he realised he was gay, and he hates to hear stories of kids committing suicide because they fear their sexual leanings.

So he has written YOU'RE DIFFERENT + THAT'S SUPER to encourage gay teens to embrace their sexuality.

Kressley says, "Gay teens are three times more likely to commit suicide than their straight peers. That was one of the reasons I wrote the book.

"Kids need to know it's OK, that there's someone like them."
