Assembly Speaker John A. Pérez is the third most powerful public official in California. And as an openly gay man, he has been deeply moved by the rash of gay teen suicides - and the knowledge of how stressful the holidays can be. Perez came out to his family during Thanksgiving and in this video, he shares how difficult - and ultimately rewarding - that experience was. "From the moment you free yourself from the closet, it gets better," Perez says. Please watch.
