The Trevor Project* has received support from many celebrities, including actress Anna Kendrick. Anna Kendrick, the ‘Pitch Perfect’ star, has been supporting The Trevor Project since 2010 and with the heated 2016 presidential campaign in America making gay rights an issue, the Trevor Project’s work is more important than ever, according to her in her interview with Variety magazine. She said: “There’s something interesting happening with the younger generation. A lot of my vocal fans on social media are young gay women. Everyone’s becoming more open and it seems like the tide is shifting, but the reactionaries get more vocal and vitriolic too. Organizations like the Trevor Project let teens know that there is hope.”
*The Trevor Project is an American non-profit organization founded in 1998 and the leading national organization focused on suicide prevention efforts among lesbian,gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning and other queer (LGBTQ+) youth. Founded in 1998 in West Hollywood, California, by James Lecesne, Peggy Rajski, and Randy Stone, they are the creators of the 1994 Academy Award-winning short film Trevor, a dramedy about Trevor, a gay thirteen-year-old boy who, when rejected by friends because of his sexuality, makes an attempt to take his life. The filmmakers realized that some of the program's young viewers might be facing the same kind of crisis as Trevor and decided to dedicate themselves to forming what was, in their view, a much-needed resource: an organization to promote acceptance of LGBTQ youth and to aid in crisis and suicide prevention among that group. And that’s what Anna Kendrick does as well: giving hope to LGBT teens together with The Trevor Project. Way to go Anna!
