The Academy Award-winning short film TREVOR, a funny and touching look at one 13-year-old boy's struggle to come to terms with his sexuality, is the cornerstone of THE TREVOR PROJECT.

The Trevor Project is a nonprofit endeavor created by the makers of TREVOR to promote tolerance for gay and questioning youth, and to aid in suicide prevention among that group. Statistics have shown that gay teens are three times more likely to attempt suicide than their heterosexual peers, and The Trevor Project hopes, through its efforts, to prevent some of those tragedies from occurring.

On August 11, 1998, The Trevor Project launched The Trevor Helpline, the first round-the-clock national toll-free suicide hotline for gay and questioning youth. It's open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Teens with nowhere to turn can call 800-850-8078, where they can talk to trained counselors, find local resources and take important steps on their way to becoming healthy adults. All calls are free and confidential.

"The film TREVOR is for anybody who feels they're not part of the majority or a group that is powerful. I hope kids out there see that they're not alone in their feelings -- that there's somebody else out there who has been through exactly what they're going through. The message is: there is hope and there is help. Don't give up." -- Ellen DeGeneres

In August 1998, HBO began presenting the Oscar-winning short film in a special program hosted by Ellen DeGeneres. For current air times, check your local listings or visit HBO's website and look for ELLEN DEGENERES PRESENTS "TREVOR" in their "Family" programs section.
