Storyline

Trevor is your average 70's high schooler in Bible Belt, USA: He listens to records, hangs out with his friends, and goes to the movies. But one day things change: He hits puberty, and everything seems different. He doesn't want to make out with the girls at a party. He starts to pay more attention to the other boys in his class. He starts to realize that people make fun of him for his love of ballet and theatre and Diana Ross. Eventually, Trevor comes to the realization that he's gay. Now, his friends don't want to be seen anywhere around him, his parents ignore him, his priest accuses him of being a pervert, and his best friend Pinky tells him that he's a weak person. With no one offering any support, Trevor decides to kill himself. But help comes in an unexpected form. Written by JoJo

Trivia

The Trevor Project, a national crisis and suicide prevention organization helping lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) young people, was started by the creators of this movie in response to the real-life issues faced by the main character. Before the film's first airing on HBO (in 1998), James Lecesne, Peggy Rajski, and Randy Stone looked for a preexisting organization that they could cite in the credits as a go-to resource for viewers, but found that there was no such crisis line, so they founded the Trevor Hotline, which still (as of August 2009) operates as an around-the-clock call-in and website helpline for LGBTQ youth who are in crisis, facing familial rejection, or considering suicide.

Wonderful movie about coming out angst
13 July 2001 | by (NYC/FL) – See all my reviews

This short indie film left me wanting more. Trevor,(wonderfully played by Barsky) is a sensitive young man who is being raised by clueless parents. That Trevor is gay seems obvious to everyone but Mom and Dad - Trevor seems like a wonderful kid but the kid adores Diana Ross and Broadway show tunes...

Trevor is rejected by the object of his first crush. But Trevor is nothing if not resilient and it is his inner strength that makes this such a great movie.

The movie is wonderfully upbeat, the music is marvelous. This movie should be shown as part of a regular school curriculum. This movie will save lives.
