  1. 1. A ZINE FOR LGBTQ+ YOUTH Ella Morgan The Trevor Project
  2. 2. Those who are a part of the LGBTQIA+ community are constantly under scrutiny and discrimination. It is especially hard on LGBTQ youth who face more barriers when coming out. People and laws are very hard on those who go against heteronormative culture, which impacts the lives of many. I am very fortunate to be a straight identifying female so I am not directly impacted by this issue. Due to this, I think it is important for me to use my privilege to get the message out. I believe that it is very important for those outside of the community to advocate for those whose voices are not heard. background The Trevor Project
  3. 3. The Trevor Project is a nonprofit organization that provides a hotline to help LGBTQ youth who are struggling. They are able to help whenever and however, whether someone is having suicidal thoughts or just need someone to talk to. They are available through text at 678-678, over the phone at 1-866-488-7386, or over chat on their website at www.thetrevorproject.org. The Trevor Project The Trevor Project search "The Trevor Project" on your browser click the "Make a Donation" hyperlink under the first Trevor Project link. If you are interested in donating follow these steps:
  4. 4. I made bracelets that I sold for five dollars by spreading the word through social media and by word of mouth. The bracelets were made from heishi beads and have colors that match the pride flag. All of the proceeds from the bracelets will be donated directly to the Trevor Project. I ended up selling fourteen bracelets for five dollars each ending with a total of seventy five dollars donated to the Trevor Project. According to their website, donating to the Trevor project will “train a record number of crisis counselors so we can connect with more LGBTQ youth, continue and expand all of our crisis services 24/7 and for free, expand our advocacy, research, and education efforts, and save young LGBTQ lives”. It also goes on to talk about how donating will show support and pride for the LGBTQ community and goes on to talk about how the Trevor Project helps many LGBTQ youth who are struggling. action & analysis
  5. 5. Donating and volunteering are one of my favorite things to do because I just love helping people. I enjoyed combining my love for making bracelets and making a difference. Actually being able to donate to an organization like this felt very rewarding and made me feel like I made a difference. I have had so many friends in my life who were either scared to come out or felt very alone because they were a part of the LGBTQ community and it was a very hard thing to watch as a friend. By donating to the Trevor Project like this I realize I would love to do something like this later in life as well. reflection If I were to do this again I would probably go through selling organizations like Etsy so that I can broaden my audience. Other than that I feel this project was executed wonderfully. thank you for reading :)
