Gaga Gets Kudos At Trevor Project’s Trevor Live Gala in Hollywood

The Trevor Live event in Los Angeles, which raises vital funds for The Trevor Project‘s suicide-prevention services, is a who’s who of celebrities. At least celebrities that have a soft spot for LGBT youth.

And when it comes to A-Listers who love gay kids, there’s none bigger than Lady Gaga, an honoree at this year’s event, taking place December 4 at the Hollywood Palladium.  She’s receiving the Trevor Hero Award for her advocacy on behalf of the gay community, while Google Inc. is getting Trevor 2020 Award for increasing visibility and understanding of LGBT issues and creating a model for gay-friendly workplaces.

“Our young people are at the center of a health crisis, and vocal leaders like Lady Gaga and technology leaders like Google Inc. have stepped up to help change our culture,” said Trevor Project director David McFarland. “Our honorees are working with The Trevor Project to make a better today and a brighter tomorrow for youth.”
Mother Monster’s not the only star hitting the stage that night: Neil Patrick Harris, Mary J. Blige, Queen Latifah and Glee‘s Darren Criss and Amber Riley are all scheduled to perform. Also making appearances are Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas, Will Arnett, Amber Heard, Christina Hendricks, Rashida Jones, Queen Latifah, Joe Manganiello, Zachary Quinto, Kyle Richards, Nicole Richie, Amber Riley,  Zoe Saldana, Amy Poehler, LeAnn Rimes, Matt Bomer, Jane Lynch, the cast of Glee and Modern Family, and many others.

This sounds hotter than the Oscars!

      Great line-up of celebrities. Conspicuously absent from the line-up is Madonna. I guess she’s just too busy trying to reinvent herself for the 36,934th time.

      Neither this article nor the Trevor Project press release mentioned that Lady Gaga is bi. They didn’t even refer to her as “out”. Not good enough.

      Gaga and Cyndi Lauper are the best advocates we have. Well done, girl-very well
      deserved.

      I don’t mean to go Gaga vs. Madonna, but for being such a gay icon, what has Madonna really done for gay men? Gaga is our true advocate.

      @KS:

      They both sing and dance for gay people. This inspires young gay kids to dream of being like Madonna or Lady Gaga, namely; rich, straight, white females.

      WHAT ABOUT ADAM LAMBERT? HE POSTED A “IT GETS BETTER” VIDEO ON 10-18-2010. A VERY UNEXPECTED B-DAY SURPRISE FOR ME. HE HAS BEEN OUT AND PROUD SINCE HE WAS 18. VERY FEW CELEBS HAVE THE BRASS BALLS THAT ADAM HAS. HE IS A ROLE MODEL AND A BEACON OF HOPE FOR ME AND MANY OTHERS WORLDWIDE. A GAY MAN THAT IS THE ANTITHESIS OF WHAT A GAY PERSON IS “EXPECTED” TO BE AND HOW TO REPRESENT THE GLBT COMMUNITY. I APPLAUDE HIM FOR BEING TRUE TO HIS NATURE. LOVE AND LOTS OF HUGS, ADAM. XOXOXOXOXOXOX’S.
