Around Valentine’s Day, NCIS actress Pauley Perrett released a new song called “Beautiful Child” to spread awareness of The Trevor Project, and our life-saving mission. Long-time Trevor supporter, Lance Bass joined Pauley for the song’s music video along with Criminal Minds actress Kirstin Vangsness, Calpernia Addams, Kevin Lawson, and more.
“Beautiful Child” sends a message of love to every young person, and lets listeners know that someone out there cares. At the end of the song’s music video, viewers are encouraged to call the Trevor Lifeline if they are ever feeling suicidal or need help.
“I can’t tell you how many times a song, or music, has saved my life,” said Pauley. “It’s those little melodies that carry you through the hardest times. Music can translate a message that, in some ways, is even more impactful than spoken or written words.”
Pauley continued, “The negative messages around us, telling people that being LGBTQ is wrong, are not the truth. Our goal is to help reach youth who need to hear that they are beautiful, just the way they are. As the song says, ‘Know you are loved. Don’t be scared.'”
