Actress Jane Lynch on Monday hosted
TrevorLIVE, a fundraiser to benefit The Trevor Project, which runs
the nation's only 24-hour suicide hotline for LGBT youth.
Taking place at the Chelsea Piers in
New York, TrevorLIVE featured musical performances by Bill Porter
(Kinky Boots), Jessica Sanchez and the PS 22 Youth Chorus.
The organization honored openly gay
mountaineer Carson Crane, the founder of the Rainbow Summits Project,
with its Trevor Youth Innovator Award and Wells Fargo with its Trevor
20/20 Visionary Award. Michelle Lee, a regional president at Wells
Fargo, accepted the award on behalf of the bank.
Cindy McCain, the wife of Arizona
Senator John McCain, was presented with the group's Trevor Hero Award
by her daughter Meghan McCain.
In remarks to TheWrap.com
at the event, Cindy McCain, a Republican, said that the GOP's
opposition to gay rights would fade by 2016.
“You're going to see a major turn,”
she said. “By the next presidential election, I think this will be
an issue that will be very much agreed on by both parties.”
