Trevor is honored to be partnered with MTV for their new show, “Faking It,” a teen-targeted romantic comedy that addresses what it means to be true to who you are and who you love. We are excited that Trevor’s relationship with MTV continues to grow in a positive direction to empower all youth.
“Faking It” show runner, Carter Covington has been volunteering to help save lives with The Trevor Project for several years. It stuck with Carter that even if a young person is in an accepting environment, they may still be at risk to attempt suicide, which is why “Faking It” is working together with The Trevor Project and other organizations that support vulnerable youth, including LGBTQ youth.
Carter said, “Volunteering for Trevor, I have seen firsthand the vital services and hope they provide LGBTQ youth. When I wrote ‘Faking It’, I wanted the show to have the same message as the one Trevor delivers every day – that it’s OK to be exactly who you are, without shame or fear. And for anyone watching whose high school isn’t as open and accepting as the one in our show, I’m thankful they’ll have access to Trevor’s life-saving resources.”
The Trevor Project is proud to share positive and affirming resources with fans of the show through MTV Act. Stay tuned for the show’s premiere on April 22nd at 10:30/9:30 Central!
