The Plight & Pain of GLBT Teens: Who Cares?


Jorge Valencia


Topic: The Plight & Pain of GLBT Teens: Who Cares?

The Trevor Project Cares and so should you!

The cornerstone of The Trevor Project is the 18-minute film TREVOR, a comedy/drama about a gay 13-year old boy named Trevor who, when rejected by friends and peers because of his sexuality, makes an unsuccessful attempt to take his life. Heartfelt and moving, this bittersweet tale won the 1994 Academy Award for Best Live Action Short Film.

The TREVOR creators Randy Stone (producer), Peggy Rajski (producer/director) and James Lecesne (writer), established The Trevor Helpline to coincide with the airing of TREVOR on HBO with startup funds provided by The Colin Higgins Foundation. As a result, The Trevor Helpline became the first national 24-hour toll-free suicide prevention hotline aimed at gay and questioning youth.

The Trevor Project also reaches teens through The Trevor Educational Package. Designed from the start to be a teaching tool for school and institutional use, the film TREVOR was combined with teaching guides and support materials created by Intermedia, Inc., an award-winning educational media company with a long history of bringing difficult subjects into the classroom. Since its completion in 1995, The Trevor Educational Package has been disseminated to hundreds of schools, universities, community groups and professional organizations around the country.

Guest: Jorge Valencia
