“I used to call the Trevor Project when I was 17/18 because I just wanted to say that I was Trans.. and that was a really scary thing… I used to call and hang up and not have the courage to speak to someone but now you can just type it and if I had had it at that time it would have jump started a lot of healing for me and been a short cut to who I was suppose to be.”
As a longtime supporter of the LGBTQ community, AT&T was proud to make a $1 million contribution in 2018 and to announce a long-term partnership with The Trevor Project. Helping to modernize and transform The Trevor Project’s proven suicide prevention capabilities means connecting more LGBTQ youth to The Trevor Project’s life-saving services.
“Our work with The Trevor Project is especially meaningful to AT&T. We’re proud to make millions of connections every day and those connections are never more important than in a time of need or crisis,” said Valerie Vargas, SVP of advertising and creative services, AT&T.
“As one of the first corporate allies of the LGBTQ community, providing resources and support– whether it’s through our technology or our dedicated employees – to help save lives of LGBTQ young people is a crucial part of our mission.”
