The Trevor Project: Preventing LGBTQ Youth Suicide

The Trevor Project: Preventing LGBTQ Youth Suicide

*UPDATE: We sold out of all pins on December 17th and made a donation of $310 to The Trevor Project on December 18th, 2019!

100% of the profits the this new pin will be donated to The Trevor Project on a monthly basis. A limited run of 100 pins were created for the project.

My latest project was inspired by getting to know more people in the film photography community who live different lifestyles and face different challenges than I do, which lead to some conversations about the high rate of depression likeliness of suicide in LGBTQ youth. Through some research I found many unsettling statistics, especially troublesome during this time of year when an emphasis on family and togetherness is highly stressed.

I came to be familiar with a non-profit organization called The Trevor Project, a leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer & questioning (LGBTQ) youth.
