Gay icon Kathy Griffin and Levis
Strauss & Co. will be honored on December 5 at Trevor LIVE, a
fundraiser to benefit The Trevor Project, the California-based
non-profit that runs the nation's only 24-hour, toll free
confidential suicide hotline for gay and questioning youth.
“Trevor LIVE closes an historic year
for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning community
as the tragic losses of young people have caused a resounding
national outcry for an end to the bullying aimed at LGBTQ young
people,” Charles Robbins, executive director of the group, said in
“This event honors Kathy Griffin and
Levi Strauss & Co. who are helping to usher in positive cultural
change in this country. Their contributions to the LGBTQ community
have always been significant, but especially recently. When young
people looking for role models needed them, Kathy Griffin and Levis
Strauss & Co. made their voices heard.”
The 50-year-old star of the Bravo
reality show My Life On The D-List is a vocal supporter of gay
rights, including marriage. In a recent CNN Larry King Live
called for an end to gay bullying.
The event, to be held at the Hollywood
Palladium, will feature performances from Sarah Silverman, Wayne
Brady, Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel, Neil Patrick Harris and James
Marsden, Queen Latifah, Telly Leung, The Dan Band and Tracie Thoms.
