The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered and questioning (LGBTQ) young people under 24. The foundation offers a 24-hour phone hotline, in-school workshops, educational materials, online resources, and advocacy. Currently the Trevor Project is a major component in the Obama Administration’s antibullying program, Stopbullying.gov.
Guest of honor Lady Gaga was awarded the Trevor Hero Award for her public activism in the gay community as well as empowering youth to be accepting of themselves and others. Google Inc was also commended for its work promoting LGBTQ workplace equality over the past decade by advocating for equal policies and benefits for their LBGTQ employees.
“This means more to me than any other Grammy I could win,” said Lady Gaga upon receiving the Hero Award from the family of Jamey Rodemeyer, a bullied boy who committed suicide in September.
