I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and reflecting this week since the passing of Robin Williams by suicide. I’ve asked myself what more can I do to help people battling depression and other mental health issues. More specifically, being Chief Queer here at Project Q, I’ve asked myself what more can I do to help combat suicide for our community. I’ve decided to donate some advertising space to one of the finest suicide prevention organizations I know: The Trevor Project.
In the wake of Robin Williams taking his own life I’ve been thinking a lot about The Trevor Project. I thought I’d give them a shout out this week and help raise more awareness and shine a light on this sad darkness.
I had the opportunity to represent The Trevor Project in the parade for SF Pride a couple of months ago and it was super, super cool. I’m sure we are all mostly familiar with The Trevor Project, who they help, and what they do. What I wasn’t aware of when someone asked me that day was, “Who is Trevor?” So made a note to myself to take the time to find out…
Somehow we got lassoed into marching with the Trevor Project folks in San Francisco Pride Parade today. This is our new friend Thumbelina and her custom alterations to her Trevor Project t-shirt. Happy Pride! :)
San Francisco 49er’s cornerback Chris Culliver caused a lot of trouble for himself when just days before the Super Bowl he said gays weren’t welcome in the lockeroom or the NFL.
Well keeping the the promise he made after his apology, Culliver tweeted this photo and “Great time at LGBTQ the Q is for (question)” from the Los Angeles Trevor Project offices when he is getting educated about the struggles of LGBTQ youth.
