Katy Perry honored as a Trevor Hero

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Associate Editor

The Trevor Project honored international superstar Katy Perry with the Trevor Hero Award at a December 2 ceremony, held at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles.

Audi of America also was recognized at the 'Trevor Live' benefit gala, with the Trevor 2020 Award.

This high-profile annual event benefits the work of The Trevor Project, which provides crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to LGBTQ teens and young adults.

'I am so proud to be honored by The Trevor Project as a Trevor Hero,' said Perry. 'I hope all LGBTQ youth know that they are as valuable as anyone else, that they are amazing and unique, and make the world a more vibrant place. Trevor's life-saving, life-affirming work helps youth find the future they deserve. I want every young person to choose to have a tomorrow and to dream for the future.

'And if they don't get to hear it enough, I hope they know that they can pick up the phone to call the Trevor Lifeline, or log on and talk to someone on TrevorChat,' Perry continued. 'It's OK to ask for help. You are worth it. Make a pledge to yourself to get help if you need it, because we need you in our lives.'

A BRIGHT FUTURE
'The Trevor Project is proud to have honored Katy Perry with the Trevor Hero Award and Audi with the Trevor 2020 Award,' said Abbe Land, executive director and CEO of The Trevor Project. 'Trevor Live is where entertainment and cultural change align to send a message to young Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and questioning youth that they deserve a bright future, and it starts the moment you reach out to The Trevor Project.'

Michael Patrick, media and entertainment communications manager at Audi, said, 'Audi is grateful to be able to help encourage LGBTQ youth to take pride in themselves and the communities that support them. Today's youth are tomorrow's leaders, and being a true leader means being unique and being authentic.'

The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and questioning young people under 24. Every day, The Trevor Project saves young lives through its free and confidential lifeline, in-school workshops, educational materials, online resources, and advocacy. Honored by the White House as a Champion of Change, The Trevor Project is a leader and innovator in suicide prevention.
