Robbie Rogers Chats With the Trevor Project Sunday
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.
