TREVOR CREATING Change Conference 2011

Recently, The Trevor Project’s staff had the opportunity to connect with organizations and individuals who are working to improve the lives of LGBTQ people across the country. This past February, we attended and served as faculty at the 23rd Annual Conference on LGBT Equality: Creating Change in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Staff representing The Trevor Project’s education, community and advocacy programs co-led a Day-Long Institute at Creating Change as part of the New Beginning Initiative, a coalition of national LGBT-serving organizations organized by the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force. During the conference, we also led workshop sessions, including one about the importance of the Youth Risk Behavior Survey and the research available about LGBTQ youth, as well as a workshop about federal policies that impact LGBTQ youth. The Trevor Project also offered a Lifeguard Workshop for youth at Creating Change to train them how to be “Lifeguards” for someone who is at risk for suicide. A pillar of The Trevor Project is to create social change, and as part of that, we continue to seek partnerships with school districts across the country in order to provide life-saving suicide prevention Lifeguard Workshops trainings to faculty, staff and students. To this end, The Trevor Project partnered with the Blake School in downtown Minneapolis to offer two Lifeguard Workshops during our visit to the North Star State. We were very excited to work with the progressive-oriented staff and student body at Blake, who are motivated to be Lifeguards for youth state-wide, and look forward to the change this new relationship can bring to LGBTQ youth in Minnesota.

The Trevor Project In SAN FRANCISCO Early this year, The Trevor Project and the Human Rights Campaign announced a longterm partnership to operate a Trevor Lifeline call center and an HRC Action Center and Store from the site of Harvey Milk’s Castro Camera in San Francisco. This exciting new partnership to operate a new Lifeline call center will help improve our service to at-risk LGBTQ youth nationwide. Plus, with a San Francisco location The Trevor Project can reach and train local volunteers in the Bay Area, extending our programming in Northern California and beyond. We are thankful to HRC, which has not only donated the call center space to The Trevor Project, but will also be making a $10,000 annual donation to continue our lifesaving work in San Francisco.

For those of us who work to improve the lives of LGBTQ people, Creating Change is a time to refresh our minds, learn from our colleagues, and get energized by the incredible work happening throughout the nation. Now, with fresh ideas, new friends, and strengthened relationships, we are excited to continue to create change for LGBTQ youth.

Our thanks also extend to the grassroots supporters in San Francisco whose passion helped bring The Trevor Project to Castro Camera, and to carry on Harvey Milk’s legacy. These include Cleve Jones, Frank M. Robinson, and the Academy Award®-winning writer of “Milk” and Trevor Board Member, Dustin Lance Black.

Imperial Accord of PARTNERSHIP

Charles’ CORNER As Winter comes to a close, we at The Trevor Project are excited for the feelings of warmth and community we continue to experience. Not only have we heard from friends across the country a resounding echo telling young LGBTQ people “It Gets Better,” but we have witnessed it getting better. School districts of all sizes have contacted The Trevor Project to help teach LGBTQ-inclusive suicide prevention. And on a federal level, The Trevor Project is working to help build a safety net for at-risk LGBTQ young people as part of the National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention. While the services of The Trevor Project continue to be in demand, as you’ll see in the Program Update, (p. 4), young people are also seeking our community. More than 15,000 LGBTQ youth and straight allies belong to TrevorSpace.org, where they can be free to express themselves without fear of bullying or harassment. Coupled with the addition of TrevorChat, this growth has led to some unexpected results in our suicide prevention services. By providing fully integrated crisis intervention to youth on- and off-line through TrevorSpace, TrevorChat and the Lifeline, and we are reaching and saving more young lives than ever. The outpouring of support from our friends continues to help us expand our services as a lifeline for LGBTQ youth. We are honored to partner with the regal members of the International Court System through an Imperial Accord of Partnership throughout 2011. Similarly, we are excited for the support of Trevor Life Award Honoree Kathy Griffin, (front page), as well as corporate friends like Google, Facebook and Trevor Hope Award Honoree Levi Strauss and Co. However, the work of saving young lives requires a community of support, and through your generous contributions we can reach every youth who needs us. Thank you!

Whereas, the International Court System is one of the oldest and largest organizations in the world working to promote the well-being of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people for over fortyfive years; and Whereas, the International Court System has an unparalleled international network of courts and baronies in Canada, United States & Mexico which annually raises millions of dollars to support worthwhile causes; and Whereas, The Trevor Project, founded in 1998, is the leading national organization focused on crisis intervention and suicide prevention among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth; and Whereas, The Trevor Project is determined to end suicide among LGBTQ youth by providing life-saving and life-affirming resources including a nationwide, 24/7 crisis intervention lifeline, digital community and advocacy/educational programs that create a safe, supportive and positive environment for everyone; and Whereas, The Trevor Project envisions a future where the possibilities, opportunities and dreams are the same for all youth, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity; and Whereas, the International Court System and The Trevor Project have agreed to enter into a partnership to facilitate the two organizations working together in saving lives, building community and changing society, and that such partnership would be beneficial to the larger gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community. Now, therefore, the International Court System and The Trevor Project do hereby enter into this Imperial Accord of Partnership and will work together to promote the cause to invest in life-saving, and life-affirming work for LGBTQ youth across the country and to engage in joint projects to increase the participation of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people in the pursuit of saving young lives.

SPRING Renewal Not only is The Trevor Project on the move to end suicide among LGBTQ youth, but we also moved our Los Angeles office. With the help and support of our donors, the organization has come a long way from the days when our staff and call center occupied just 1,000 square feet of office space. Now, our new Los Angeles home is almost five times that, and we are looking to grow our space usage on the East Coast, as well. In December, we relocated 12 staff and countless volunteers to our new home, which is physically only blocks away from our old office, but is light years away from where we started. The energy is exciting! We have a new office environment that promotes fruitful communication among staff, along with our volunteers and donors. With more meeting space, we will be able to expand opportunities to interact with The Trevor Project. As we continue our national growth, we are expanding our staff resources. We finished 2010 with 16 staff members. By this Summer, we plan to have completed our growth to 24 staff members on the East and West Coasts. Yes, that’s more than 16,000 staff hours being added annually to support the vital work of The Trevor Project. The new staff members will help increase our school workshops in key cities and deliver more programs to youth, enhance our communications and marketing strategy, sustain relationships with donors, and streamline internal operations. It’s an exciting time for us! We have a new space, and a newly expanded staff. Our values remain the same, only stronger, with these investments. Our doors are open, and there are many ways to get involved. Please take some time to get acquainted with all that is new at The Trevor Project. – CHRIS HERNANDEZ, Operations Director

ADVOCACY UPDATE

Beyond the Halls of CONGRESS Youth leaders and advocates for LGBTQ youth on the national level are adapting to change following the November 2010 election. While The Trevor Project continues to champion federal legislation like the Safe Schools Improvement Act and Student Non-discrimination Act, we will also be working to bring change through non-legislative means. To those ends, The Trevor Project is a proud member of the New Beginning Initiative, urging federal agencies under the Executive Branch to make positive changes to their operating policies and regulations to benefit LGBTQ youth.

One policy change we are excited about is from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). In early 2011, HUD proposed regulations to end discrimination against LGBTQ people in housing and shelter programs. Since upwards of 40% of all homeless youth are LGBTQ, and 2/3 of homeless youth will attempt suicide at least once, this policy change can literally save lives. Once enacted, if a shelter receives public funds, they cannot turn away a young person because of their sexual orientation or gender identity.

The Trevor Project and the New Beginnings Initiative have also been working with agencies under the Department of Health and Human Services to improve data collection and resources for LGBTQ youth. Right now, very little data about LGBTQ youth exists, affecting our community’s ability to improve suicide prevention for them. This year, we have been working with states and districts to collect data about LGBTQ youth through the existing Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS). This is the only federal survey that asks about youth health behaviors, including suicide attempts and ideation. However, without questions about sexual orientation and gender identity, the YRBS is not capturing the specific health needs and disparities that LGBTQ youth face—leaving LGBTQ youth largely invisible in the eyes of the government. While there is much to be done in the halls of Congress, with just a few small changes—to the YRBS, to HUD’s homeless shelter policies, and through other federal agencies—we are working to improve the lives of LGBTQ youth. – DAVE REYNOLDS, Sr. Public Policy and Research Manager

PROGRAM UPDATE

THE IMPORTANCE of Our Work

The last few months have been a remarkable period of growth for The Trevor Project, and the organization has become a national hub for youth in need of support, as well as for adults wanting to help these young people. Since October, we have distributed more than 2,500 Survival Kits to educators and youth service providers across the country. We have also increased our volunteer trainings, graduating more than 60 new program volunteers serving LGBTQ youth nationwide. Plus, because more young people have heard about The Trevor Project, more are reaching out on the Lifeline, TrevorChat and Dear Trevor. Highlighting The Trevor Project’s leadership role in suicide prevention among LGBTQ youth, we have been invited to conduct a halfday institute at the American Association of Suicidology’s National Conference in April. This is an exciting opportunity to educate health workers, clinicians and educators about the importance of integrating information about LGBTQ youth in suicide prevention programming for schools, community based organizations and other youth spaces. As more youth become aware of our services and the demand for our programs continues to grow, we will be seeking new volunteers in each of our programmatic areas. Please visit TheTrevorProject.org to learn more about opportunities. – PHOENIX SCHNEIDER, Program Director

Highlighting the contributions of Trevor’s volunteers

Volunteer SPOTLIGHT Ten years ago, Victor Holguin made a list of things he promised to accomplish, and volunteering for The Trevor Project was on that list. He kept that promise and has now been volunteering with The Trevor Project since June 2010. “My heart sinks when I know kids struggle with being accepted for who they are. It’s such an easy fix and yet so complicated in reality. I am so honored to just be there and listen to these young people.” When Victor is not preventing suicide on The Trevor Lifeline, he is spending his time being a father to his 15 year old daughter and running marathons! Victor has run two marathons for charities and this year entered The Trevor Project into the NYC Half-Marathon Charity Program. The same month that The Trevor Project was accepted, Victor also donated one of his kidney’s to an altruistic kidney exchange program and experienced the tremendous loss of his father who passed away in late December. “I had lots of obstacles and hurdles but either way I knew I had to make it happen even if I walk the 13.1 miles crying my eyes out! Lots of people have shown interest from all over – we actually have a waiting list of people now because we filled our spots!” Victor believes the most important thing in life is to “pay it forward”. He knows how easy it is to get wrapped up in our own worlds and forget to give back or help others. “Sometimes the forward movement lunges our best selves into another state. We are all so different and special and we ALL have something worth sharing no matter what our differences may be.” Thank you for sharing your time and talents with us, Victor! – KELLI PETERMAN, Crisis Services Manager, East Coast

Fall Fête SOARS More than 500 guests — including high-profile attendees were Bravo’s Andy Cohen, MTV’s Real World: Brooklyn alum Scott Herman, Reichen Lehmkuhl, and George Takei and Brad Altman — packed the Theory flagship store in New York City for the Trevor Young Professionals’ inaugural “Fall Fête” on October 21, 2010. People from across the Northeast came out to support the important work of The Trevor Project and to enjoy cocktails provided by Veev Açaí Spirits. Attendees were also treated to a special performance by Tony Award®-winning actress and singer, Lea Salonga, who sang “Reflections” from Disney’s Mulan. The sold-out event raised more than $40,000 for The Trevor Project. Stay tuned for more details on the Trevor Young Professionals’ upcoming second annual “Spring Fling” event in New York City this April. – KEVIN O’LEARY Trevor Young Professionals Committee, NYC

STORIES From the Frontline Daniel was in distress. Through tears, he explained to the Lifeline Counselor that everyone, including his mother thinks he is gay, even though he’s sure that he is straight. Because he has a seemingly feminine voice, he is bullied incessantly, and he called the Trevor Lifeline for support. At first our counselor evaluated whether Daniel might be questioning his sexual orientation, but the more they talked, it was evident that Daniel is straight. He was dealing with being bullied and feeling invisible. To Daniel, his biggest challenge was learning to “come out” as straight.

“I can honestly say that you just saved my life.” Alias: Daniel Age: 15 State: MS

It’s strange to consider, but for someone like Daniel the reassurance in “It Gets Better” videos didn’t seem to him to apply. Does it get better if you’re straight and being bullied for presenting as gay? Who is looking out for people like Daniel? Because he felt isolated and alone, a few months ago Daniel had attempted to take his own life. He confessed his family didn’t know about the attempt, and our counselor noted the urgency of connecting Daniel with a network of support. Together with the Lifeline Counselor, Daniel put together a plan for dealing with his isolation. They also planned how to communicate to others his actual orientation, discussing how, when and what to say to his mom. Our counselor gave him a referral to a local counseling center, and Daniel also mentioned that his history teacher is someone he can talk to. He committed to talking to her about it the next day. According to their plan, Daniel will talk to his mom soon, and he’ll call the Trevor Lifeline back for support if he needs it. At the end of the call, Daniel said, “I’m amazed that I told you all this stuff. I thought that I would call you and it would fail. Thank you. I can’t say it enough. I can honestly say that you just saved my life.”

TREVOR LIVE! at the Hollywood Palladium The new Trevor LIVE! proved to be more than a sold out evening of irreverent comedy, music, and awards, it was a celebration of life-saving change. At the fabulous Hollywood Palladium, we welcomed 1,000 guests in celebrating our two outstanding honorees. Trevor Life Award honoree Kathy Griffin, a two-time Emmy Award®-winner and Grammy®-nominated comedienne, has been an outspoken supporter of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender rights. Trevor Hope Award honoree Levi Strauss & Co., one of the world’s largest branded apparel companies and the global leader in jeanswear, has been a leader in the fight for equality for more than two decades. With a nod of thanks to our Special Guest Producing Director Adam Shankman, our presenters and performers seemed to shine extra bright this year. Guests were dazzled with performances by the original and Hollywood casts of RENT, including Idina Menzel, Taye Diggs, Gwen Stewart, and David Burtka. James Marsden and Neil Patrick Harris entertained with a hilarious musical number. Darren Criss shocked the crowd with a surprise duet with Katy Perry. Queen Latifah’s voice proved to be incomparable, both a cappella and with a choir of 30. And Sarah Silverman’s comedic talents had guests rolling with laughter. Trevor LIVE! at the Hollywood Palladium was not just an unforgettable night for our guests, it raised awareness for The Trevor Project and our work to prevent suicide among LGBTQ youth. Buy your tickets now to Trevor LIVE! at Capitale in New York City on Monday June 27, 2011. The show is already shaping up to be stellar, and with months left to plan, it can only get better! – KIM TRINH, Palette Fund Intern - Communications TheTrevorProject.org
