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.

Bravo for Trevor!
1 June 2004 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

I thought the movie was great. Not to mention that it speaks to the subject matter of Gay and Lesbian Youth and teen suicide with a frankness lacking in the world-- especially given the year it was released.

Gay and Lesbian Youth don't usually have the resources available to deal with the emotional and psychological implications associated with coming to terms with one's sexuality. That said, it is a proven statistic that Gay and Lesbian teenagers are more that twice as likely to attempt, and in some cases, commit suicide.

This film deals with that subject in a sympathetic manner only because this is a matter to which any emotionally empathetic person should find disturbing! I only wish that it would be made more readily available to those teenagers that could benefit from it the most. Knowing you're not alone in the world, especially in this concern, could truly mean the difference between life and death.
