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.

Great short movie with positive message attached
7 June 2006 | by ninoguapoSee all my reviews

Trevor is the first short movie I watched - I really mean the first one since until now this kind of movies - which go on for only about twenty minutes was not familiar to me. The introductory announcement at beginning of the movie was very good - actually as good as the movie itself - I think that many people do need such positive encouragements more often. The scenes are well filmed and the acting is fine . I especially liked the way the movie was structured - with Trevor talking to the viewers in a way.

The movie itself was well made as well - especially the soundtrack - manly Diana Ross , but you got to watch it to understand more...
