Thank you for making TrevorLIVE LA 2016 a spectacular and moving celebration!

Our staff and volunteers here at The Trevor Project could not be more grateful for all the support from our entire Trevor family on December 4th, making this year’s TrevorLIVE such an astonishing success. Thanks to you, our supporters, and to everyone who watched or attended, we raised nearly $1,000,000. That goes a long way to helping keep our Lifeline available to all LGBTQ youth who need us, especially during this holiday season.

Thanks to Special Guest Director, Chris Folkens, guest Producer Dan Bucantinsky, and to the exceptional performers, supporters, staff, board members, and volunteers who worked tirelessly to make the evening truly magical.  Hosted by the always outrageous Bruce Vilanch, guests and everyone watching the official Facebook Livestream event were treated to appearances by Lance Bass, Margaret Cho, Chloe Grace Moretz, Lana Parrilla, Pauley Perrette, Leslie Jordan, and Dana Goldberg, to name just a few, as well as honorees Kelly Osbourne, Facebook (Trevor 20/20 Visionary), and Ingrid Nilsen (Trevor Digital Innovator). We were also treated to the musical gifts of Our Lady J, Brian Justin Crum, Trans Chorus of Los Angeles, Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles, and an incredibly moving performance by Ty Herndon, who is donating his share of the proceeds from his hit song, Fighter, to support Trevor’s work to save young lives.

If you missed it, you can still watch the red carpet and the full show from our official Facebook Livestream!  Find your favorite celebrities in our red carpet album, as well as photos of performers and speakers in our TrevorLIVE album on Facebook.

This celebration would not be possible without our Presenting Sponsors, AT&T (who surprised us with an additional gift of $25,000!), Goldman Sachs, and Three Olives. We thank all our generous corporate sponsors for helping us offset event costs, ensuring the money raised at TrevorLIVE goes directly to supporting LGBTQ youth in crisis.

Thanks to your overwhelming support, TrevorLIVE has nearly reached our goal of $1,000,000. If you weren’t able to donate at TrevorLIVE, you can still support LGBTQ+ youth by joining our Winter Challenge before the end of 2016! Ever dollar helps support lifesaving crisis counseling for LGBTQ youth who need to know: they are not alone.
