The Trevor Project's signature benefit, TrevorLIVE Los Angeles has announced the first honorees for its high-profile evening of music, comedy, entertainment, and inspiring guests.
On Sunday, December 8, TrevorLIVE Los Angeles will present the Trevor Youth Innovator Award to Adam White, a senior at Brigham Young University, and the Trevor 20/20 Visionary Award to Toyota.
While the event aims to raise awareness about all the work The Trevor Project does to prevent suicide among LGBT young people, TrevorLIVE, presented by Audi of America and Wells Fargo, also brings together entertainers and corporate leaders to celebrate the people dedicated to supporting, inspiring, and empowering LGBT youth.
"The 20/20 Visionary Award honors Toyota for all the support they've given the LGBTQ community, specifically for the work they've done with youth outreach," said Abbe Land, executive director and CEO of the Trevor Project. "Adam is an example of this support and a bona fide Trevor Youth Innovator, who works through his faith to ensure other LGBTQ Mormons find safety, community, and acceptance. Our Dynamic Honorees serve to teach the greater community about what it means to break boundaries and stereotypes to benefit LGBTQ youth everywhere."
In the past, TrevorLIVE has honored advocates including Cindy McCain, Katy Perry, Susan Sarandon, Lady Gaga, Daniel Radcliffe, Kathy Griffin, Neil Patrick Harris, Vanessa Williams, Dustin Lance Black, Alan Cumming, for their support of the organizations life-saving, life-affirming work.
