“As he deals with becoming a teenager in 1981, Trevor struggles to navigate his own identity and determine how he fits in a challenging world,” reads the synopsis. “When an embarrassing incident at school suddenly puts him under the wrong spotlight, Trevor must summon the courage to forge his own path. A deeply moving and funny story of self-discovery and the power of acceptance, Trevor: The Musical is about living your best life with lots of passion… and a touch of pizzazz.”
The short film, which was directed by Peggy Rajski, also inspired the creation of The Trevor Project, world’s largest LGBTQ youth suicide prevention nonprofit organization.
