Last night in West Hollywood, CA, the air was filled with warmth and brightness as an outpour of celeb supporters came to celebrate 15 years of The Trevor Project, an organization that has immensely raised awareness and shed light on the cruel realities faced by adolescences and their sexuality preferences since 1998.
Jane Lynch was honored with the Trevor Hero Award for her undying effort to empower youth both professionally and personally, increasing recognition and understanding of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) youth. She modestly accepted her awarded surrounded by fellow colleagues:
I would love this moment to be falsely modest and say that I am no hero…I would love to be able to say what I do is not extraordinary. But I can't. I deserve this freakin' award.
The honoree's charm and charisma are some of the many reasons why youth feel connected to the spitfire actress. Lynch's efforts, along with countless volunteers and supporters save young lives yearly through the 24/7 intervention services provided through The Trevor Project.
The Trevor Project:
The leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) young people ages 13-24.
