Statement from Amit Paley, CEO and Executive Director of The Trevor Project:

“The Trevor Project condemns the recent guidance from the Department of Education as a completely unacceptable attack on the rights of LGBTQ young people. In its final hours, the Trump Administration is attempting to once more harm LGBTQ students by misapplying the Supreme Court’s landmark decision in Bostock v. Clayton County.

Recent research from The Trevor Project found that LGBTQ youth whose schools are LGBTQ-affirming have significantly reduced rates of attempting suicide. We look forward to working with the Biden-Harris Administration and Secretary Designate Miguel Cardona to rescind this discriminatory guidance and implement inclusive policies that allow all LGBTQ students to thrive.”
