This July, Trevor’s outreach team attended GaymerX, an annual video game event that focuses its support on LGBTQ gamers and their allies. The San Francisco Ambassadors to The Trevor Project were there, and hosted a table with information about our life-saving programs.
During the two-day conference, Trevor Ambassadors encouraged attendees to “Be a Hero for LGBTQ Youth” by taking a picture with signs that shared encouraging messages of love and affirmation. As more and more guests learned about Trevor, an exciting number of “heroes” signed up to attend our upcoming volunteer orientation.
As a media sponsor for GaymerX, hosted by MidBoss, we were also able to place wallet cards containing the Trevor Lifeline number in the bags of over 3,000 conference-goers – half of which are estimated to be in Trevor’s age demographic.
We had a great time at GaymerX, and offer special thanks to the San Francisco Ambassadors for the fantastic job they did during the convention. Thanks to them, we were able to engage new young people in our work, and help spread Trevor’s life-saving mission.
