At UrbanStems, we stand with the LGBTQ community, both during Pride and beyond. This Pride Month, we partnered with The Trevor Project. Founded in 1998, the Trevor Project is the world's largest suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for LGBTQ youth. What began with a short film has transformed into a national movement and a renowned organization that serves as a force for good in the world.
We are proud to support all of the incredible work done by their team. From crisis intervention hotlines to suicide prevention trainings, their work offers guidance and resources to members of the LGBTQ community. Their hotline helps thousands of individuals every year and remains their primary resource for youth in crisis. This service is bolstered by their numerous digital resources and a social network for LGBTQ youth called TrevorSpace, which reaches over 100 countries worldwide. Hundreds of thousands of young people in the LGBTQ community have been helped by both the online and in-person resources provided by the Trevor Project.
Additionally, their team partners with renowned research organizations, such as academic institutions, publishing the first even nationwide estimate of suicidal ideation among LGBTQ youth. They also launched the world’s largest survey of LGBTQ youth mental health. Their commitment to ending this public health crisis is certainly something to be celebrated.
In addition to our 2021 Pride Month Collection, we are celebrating Pride by pledging $10,000 to The Trevor Project to celebrate Pride Month. We are proud to support their life-affirming and lifesaving work for the three years running. As this Pride Month comes to an end, our team recognizes the importance of celebrating the LGBTQ community not just during Pride, but every other month of the year as well.
