The Trevor Project’s research estimates that at least one LGBTQ young person between the ages of 13 and 24 attempts suicide every 45 seconds in the U.S. Currently, about 45% of the youth we serve across our crisis services are youth of color, and we know from our 2022 National Survey on LGBTQ Youth Mental Health that many LGBTQ young people of color would benefit from increased access to culturally competent mental health support.
Trevor centers intersectionality in our work by designing our programs for the many identities that make up the fabric of our community. We use our research to advance visibility, provide diverse communities with the best care possible, and empower organizations and governments to support LGBTQ young people of intersectional identities more effectively. Our partners at Procter & Gamble deeply support this work, which is why we are so excited to partner with them again this year for their fourth “Can’t Cancel Pride” virtual event.
This year, the event will focus on a message of hope: “The Future Starts Now,” an evening recognizing the past present and future of the LGBTQ community and organizations creating a more inclusive and equal world. The show will be hosted on June 15 by JoJo Siwa, featuring performances and appearances from Brandi Carlile, Adam Lambert, Big Freedia, Ciara, Billy Porter, Hayley Kiyoko, Kesha, and more.
