The stars of Glee, The New Normal, The Vampire Diaries, Revenge and a slew of others came out in support of the Trevor Live event last night (December 02, 2012), honoring Katy Perry and Audi of America for The Trevor Project held at The Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles, California.
The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning youth.
She is quoted by RumorFix.com as saying, “I grew up in a very intolerant environment. For a long time, I was told that people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or questioning were an abomination. As I’ve grown up, I’ve freed myself from the mindset.”
“There was some perspective growth in my family. I believe in change… I believe that sexuality is fluid – nobody introduces me as, ‘This is Katy Perry, she is straight.’ I hope in the future that we will all grow beyond labels, beyond treating gays as a novelty friend group.”
