The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth. If you or a young LGBTQ person you care about is experiencing a crisis, please call the Trevor Lifeline at 866-488-7386. The call is free and confidential.

The Trevor Project is determined to end suicide among LGBTQ youth by providing life-saving and life-affirming resources including our nationwide, 24/7 crisis intervention lifeline, digital community, and advocacy/educational programs that create a safe, supportive and positive environment for everyone.

The life-saving, life-affirming work of The Trevor Project springs from the powerful intersection of storytelling on stage and film.

In 1994, producers Randy Stone and Peggy Rajski saw writer/performer James Lecesne bring to life Trevor, a character he created as part of his award-winning one-man show WORD OF MOUTH. Convinced Trevor’s story would make a wonderful short film, Stone and Rajski invited Lecesne to adapt it into a screenplay. Rajski directed the movie and TREVOR went on to win many prestigious awards including the Academy Award® for Best Live Action Short Film.

The Oscar-winning film eventually launched a national movement. When producer Randy Stone secured an airing on HBO with Ellen DeGeneres hosting, director/producer Peggy Rajski discovered there was no real place for young people like Trevor to turn when facing challenges similar to his. She quickly recruited mental health experts and figured out how to build the infrastructure necessary for a nationwide 24-hour crisis line, and writer James Lecesne secured the funds to start it.

On the night their funny and moving coming-of-age story premiered on HBO in 1998, these visionary filmmakers launched The TREVOR Lifeline, the first national crisis intervention and suicide prevention lifeline for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth.

Since then, hundreds of thousands of young people in crisis have reached out to The Trevor Project’s multiple in-person and online life-saving, life-affirming resources – the Trevor Lifeline, TrevorChat, TrevorText, and TrevorSpace, or participated in Trevor Education Trainings, or joined the Trevor Advocacy Network or their local Trevor Ambassadors or Trevor NextGen volunteer group.

The Trevor Project is the premier organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to LGBTQ teens and young adults. Learn more at TheTrevorProject.org.
