Robbie Rogers Chats With the Trevor Project Sunday

Robbie Rogers Trevor ProjectRobbie Rogers will be doing a live Google+ Hangout with the folks at the Trevor Project this Sunday July 14 at 2 PM PT.

The Trevor Project is a non-profit organization aimed at suicide prevention among LGBT youth. It was started in the 1990s by the creators of the 1994 Oscar-winning short film “Trevor” about a 13 year old boy who attempts to take his own life after being taunted by his peers. They provide a helpline for teens and other resources.

It’s great to see Robbie Rogers using his prominence as a pro athlete to help kids who are going through the same struggles with sexuality he did when he was their age.

You can view a video invitation to the Hangout from Rogers at his Google+ page, and you can RSVP to the Hangout at the Trevor Project’s page.

(Update 7/15/13)
