Keygan Miller (they/them), Public Training Manager at The Trevor Project, has a unique perspective as a former educator on what LGBTQ young folks need from their teachers. After serving as a youth educator, I came to The Trevor Project with a…

Trevor Project is “Sharing Space” to Celebrate Transgender Day of Visibility

In light of the record number of anti-LGBTQ – and specifically, anti-trans – bills across the country, The Trevor Project believes trans and nonbinary young people should be able to tell their own stories. To mark Transgender Day of Visibility (celebrated each year on March 31st), we're launching the first episode of “Sharing Space,” our new video series featuring roundtable-style conversations with LGBTQ youth moderated by curious, open-minded adults and allies. The first episode of this educational series is moderated by longtime supporter of The Trevor Project, Daniel Radcliffe. "We listen to so many people talk about trans youth and…
