Who could have ever imagined that an Academy-award winning short film (“Trevor,” 1994) about a high school boy, Trevor, who tries to commit suicide because he was getting bullied for being gay, would turn into what is now The Trevor Project.
Founded in 1998 by the film’s creators, the project has grown to become the nation’s leading national organization that provides crisis intervention and suicide prevention to troubled lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth. Some of the group’s many life-saving programs includes a 24/7 crisis intervention hotline, an online social network (TrevorSpace.org) for LGBT youth to connect and various workshops and educational outlets.
Last Sunday, the project hosted a benefit event, “Trevor Live,” at the Hollywood Palladium with performances by “Glee” stars Darren Criss and Matthew Morrison, as well as Broadway star Kristin Chenoweth, among others. Katy Perry was the night’s honoree and she received the Trevor Hero Award.
