On Sunday, December 2nd, The Trevor Project honored international super star Katy Perry with the Trevor Hero Award and Audi of America with the Trevor 2012 Award at “Trevor Live” in Los Angeles (Hollywood Palladium, 6215 W. Sunset Blvd.).
As performers and special guests arrived for Trevor Live, hundreds of thousands of people tuned in online for a special live stream of the red carpet, hosted by WhatsTrending.com.
Co-hosts Shira Lazar and Tyler Oakley interviewed dozens of talented supporters of The Trevor Project and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) youth for a 2-hour live red carpet arrivals show, sponsored by Toyota Financial Services.
The high-profile annual event benefits the life-saving, life-affirming work of The Trevor Project, which provides crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to LGBTQ teens and young adults.
The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning youth.
The Trevor Project was founded in 1998 by James Lecesne, Peggy Rajski and Randy Stone, the creators of the Academy Award®-winning short film TREVOR. Set in 1981, TREVOR is a timeless coming-of-age story about love, loss, and learning to be yourself.
“Trevor’s life-saving, life-affirming work helps youth find the future they deserve. I want every young person to choose to have a tomorrow and to dream for the future.”~Katy Perry, Trevor Hero Award honoree
