Question:

I would like to formally and informally thank the Trevor Project, Team, Staff, and everyone in between for all the support and amazing answers to all my questions. You have really helped me through something that has been on my mind for years now so I can’t thank you enough. I come here and I can see that not only can I be myself but I know I’m not alone in this. I know I’ll have more questions and concerns but coming here just makes me safe. Again, thanks.

 

Answer:

 

Dear Writer,

Thank you for your… thank you!

It’s so great to hear that you view Trevor’s different outreach tools as a place to feel open and supported. There are definitely a lot of us who have struggled in regards to our LGBTQ identities.

Please keep your questions and concerns coming – we always are listening and ready to hear you.

Thanks again for your appreciation, and we appreciate you for being true to yourself.

Best,
Ask Trevor
