Trevor Joins United Nations Pride Event

As a part of LGBT Pride Month, The Trevor Project is proud to have partnered with the U.S. Mission to the United Nations in an event to commemorate the 45th Anniversary of the Stonewall Riots in New York. Hosted by U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power, this educational experience took place at Roosevelt House at Hunter College in New York, NY on Thursday, June 26

Trevor volunteers, Alyx Steadman (a former leader of the YAC) and Zachary Quinto, both spoke alongside LGBT activist Bill Bahlman and discussed the domestic and international progress we’ve made for LGBT citizens since 1969. However, they also underscored the work left to achieve before rejection, discrimination, and hate are a thing of the past.

“The phones at The Trevor Project still keep ringing day and night,” said U.S. Ambassador Power, after highlighting her commitment to tackle these challenges. “So long as those phones keep ringing, we still have work left to do.”
