Lady Gaga to Receive Trevor Hero Award
Lady Gaga is once again being recognized for her support and kindness towards the LGBTQ community. The “Q” is for “questioning,” in case you weren’t familiar with what it stands for, since it’s newly added to the LGBT tag. Gaga will be honored with the Trevor Hero Award, courtesy of The Trevor Project, on Dec. 4.
The “Trevor Live” event will take place at the Hollywood Palladium and the yearly fete celebrates and benefits the work of the Trevor Project, which was honored by the White House as a Champion of Change for its leadership and innovation in suicide prevention.
“Our young people are at the center of a health crisis, and vocal leaders like Lady Gaga and technology leaders like Google Inc. have stepped up to help change our culture,” said David McFarland, Interim Executive Director and CEO of The Trevor Project in a statement
He continued, “Our honorees are working with The Trevor Project to make a better today and a brighter tomorrow for youth. We are proud to honor Lady Gaga with the Trevor Hero Award and Google Inc. with the Trevor 2020 award for their work to help young people express their true selves with pride.”Google Inc. is also being honored.
Gaga is being thanked for being an inspiration to the youth of today and for her tireless efforts to support and increase visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning teens. Gaga even name-checked the community in the lyrics to ‘Born This Way’ and she just launched the Born This Way Foundation, which encourages people to accept and love themselves no matter what their orientation and which asks others to be open-minded to alternate lifestyles.
Congrats to Gaga on the Trevor Hero Award. We bet this one will mean a lot to her!
