Strut Your Strengths For The Trevor Project’s 25th Anniversary

BY: Trevor News

Our community has grown so much over the past 25 years. Together, we have built a network of people dedicated to supporting LGBTQ young people, advocating for their rights, and making sure the world becomes a better place for them. Every person in this growing community of care has unique strengths and passions, whether that’s dancing, pottery, advocacy, running, or reading. Join us in celebrating each other and Trevor’s 25th Anniversary in our 25 Minute Strut Your Strengths Facebook Challenge!

This virtual fundraising challenge is all about what makes you special — and raising funds for The Trevor Project while doing it. You can join the Facebook group now and start fundraising today. Then on March 1, you can officially log your 25 minutes of daily activity of your choice. Join our community on Facebook who are showcasing their skills and interests in support of Trevor!

Follow these simple steps to join our Strut Your Strengths Challenge:

While our community struts their strengths, the money they raise helps The Trevor Project continue to provide free, confidential 24/7 suicide prevention and crisis services. This effort will also support Trevor’s ongoing public education, advocacy, and research initiatives, all in hopes of building that world where LGBTQ young people are safe and free to be themselves.

Together, we can help end suicide for LGBTQ young people. Thank you so much for your support and best of luck with the challenge!

Young people are listening. I’ve heard many people underplay the dangers of anti-LGBTQ rhetoric, citing that “it’s just politics” or “these candidates are just trying to fire up the base.” They say that the Supreme Court will never overturn Obergefell vs. Hodges (the landmark Supreme Court cases which legalized same-gender marriage), even when Justices make veiled threats to do so.  These folks are missing the bigger point, and a point that isn’t talked about enough. This year, 85% of transgender & nonbinary and 66% of LGBTQ young people said recent debates about state laws restricting the rights of transgender people…
