Supports LGBTQ Young People
The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer & questioning (LGBTQ) young people under 25. Offering a suite of crisis intervention and suicide prevention programs, The Trevor Project helps LGBTQ youth in crisis.
According to The Trevor Project, 78% of transgender and nonbinary youth reported being the subject of discrimination due to their gender identity. It’s especially important to support LGBTQ young people during Pride month, because many are isolated from welcoming communities and resources due to COVID-19 and social distancing.
Trevor offers peer-to-peer social network support, as well as education programs intended to cover a wide range of topics, including the differences between sex and gender and best practices on how to support transgender and nonbinary people. They are constantly working to navigate the challenging political landscape with a legislative advocacy department fighting for pro-LGBTQ legislation.
Help The Trevor Project protect and guide young LGBTQ people through crisis in an effort to ease social anxiety and end suicide.
