The Trevor Project, the only national organization providing suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth in crisis. The Trevor Project serves more than 100,000 LGBTQ youth every year with their life-saving programs that include the Trevor Lifeline, TrevorChat, Ask Trevor and TrevorSpace.

The need for Trevor is very real – lesbian, gay and bisexual youth are more than 4X more likely than their straight peers to attempt suicide, and youth who are questioning their sexual orientation are 3X more likely. For youth between the ages of 10 and 24, suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death nationwide.

 

2016 was a particularly difficult year for LGBTQ+ representation in the media. In the first 6 months alone, we watched more than 25 lesbian and female bisexual TV characters die at the hands of tone-deaf showrunners and writers. One death in particular—Lexa’s—hit the hardest and started the fan uproar, and we set out to let the entertainment industry know that continued repetition of the Bury Your Gays trope is harmful to the greater LGBTQ+ community, especially to queer youth.

 

Representation for the LGBTQ+ community is as rare as it is essential - not only does it help the wider world get to know our stories and humanize us, but the role models we find on TV are critical to those who don’t find support at home or in their own communities. The representation we do have must be treated with care, and our campaign demands that the entertainment industry respects its LGBTQ+ characters and fans.

 

This fundraiser was started to provide an outlet for fans to channel their grief into something positive for our community, and since this fundraiser was started in March 2016, the outpouring of support has provided more than $165,000 to help the Trevor Project provide critical support services. This year, we know our community will need this support and positivity more than ever, and our goal is to keep the movement - and this fundraiser - going strong well into the next, with a new goal of $200,000!

To all who've donated: 

I would like to take a minute and thank each and every one of you who have donated to this paramount cause. You have managed to accomplish something I could not have dreamed of through your understanding, kindness, and generosity. Every single dollar, from those who rounded up all they could afford to those who donated in a philanthropic manner, has allowed LGBTQIA who need the imperative services The Trevor Project provide to carry on. All of YOU have shown the world around you and one another that love can change lives, perspectives, can educate and reinforce empathy. I am indebted to you for your support in creating a sanctuary where our stories could be told, more importantly, where they can be heard. You are beautiful, you are unique, and you are loved. It gets better. Allow this moment to flourish into hope of a future united. All my love - Gina Tass
