Stories of Pride: The Power of Us

Take a moment to meditate on the word community. It’s a word we hear often, but think about what it means in your own life. Community can be a group of friends, a church group, a bowling team, or co-workers at your job. The people that show up for us when times are tough and remind us that we all deserve to feel and be included. Consider how your community has gotten you through tough times.

However, there is reason for…

What Trevor Learned on the Ground at the Walkouts and Rallies in Florida

We know that so many of you are exhausted, demoralized, and angry about the record number of anti-LGBTQ bills being introduced in state houses across the nation. Every time we hear fresh news of another one of over 500 harmful bills this year, we at Trevor feel despondent. The common sense idea of freedom – the freedom to parent, treat patients, express oneself, talk about one’s life at school – is under attack by politicians more focused on optics than standing up for their constituents. It’s easy to feel hopeless, and I was starting to feel that way. We knew…
