BC/EFA MAKES $25,000 DONATION TO THE TREVOR PROJECT

IN THE NAME OF THE BROADWAY COMMUNITY

Broadway Cares/ Equity Fights AIDS, Broadway.com, and Broadway Impact present Broadway’s “It Gets Better” video featuring 63 members of the New York theatrical community speaking to LGBTQ youth.

The video is part of the It Gets Better Project, which was founded by noted writer Dan Savage in response to LGBTQ teenagers who in recent months have taken their own lives after being bullied in school. The project is a video archive where people can share their stories of overcoming bullying and finding happiness and letting young people know “It Gets Better.”

To see the video, which includes actors, writers, directors, producers, designers, technicians, and other notable members of the New York theatre community, CLICK HERE or visit: www.youtube.com/BroadwayItGetsBetter. The video can also be seen at BroadwayCares.org, Broadway.com, BroadwayImpact.org, and TheTrevorProject.org.

In a joint statement, Susan Blackwell, Hunter Bell and Matt Vogel, the video’s creators, said, “Inspired by Dan Savage’s It Gets Better Project and the videos created by our Broadway colleagues, we were moved to rally additional members of the New York theatrical community to add their voices to this crusade.  Our intent with this video is to provide young people with a message of hope and support, and to encourage adults to not only support these organizations financially, but to consistently set an example by teaching acceptance, kindness and respect and intervening when homophobia, bigotry and bullying occurs. We are proud to stand up with the Broadway community, who has once again demonstrated that when there is a crisis, it will show up and channel its voice, creative energy and money toward positive change and inspiring activism.”

In addition, BC/EFA has made a $25,000 donation to The Trevor Project, the leading national organization focused on crisis and suicide prevention efforts among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) youth, in the name of the Broadway community. To make a personal donation to The Trevor Project CLICK HERE, or visit www.TheTrevorProject.org.
