Cybill Shepherd To Be Honored

By Charlotte Robinson, November 01, 2019
The Trevor Project, the world’s largest suicide prevention & crisis intervention organization for our LGBTQ young people announced Cybill Shepherd as the 2019 recipient of the “Champion Award,” which recognizes the outstanding support of an ally & their commitment to supporting The Trevor Project’s mission. The PwC Charitable Foundation, Inc. will be the recipient of the “20/20 Visionary Award” presented to corporations supporting LGBTQ inclusion around the world. Both will be honored at the TrevorLIVE LA fundraising gala, November 17th at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles, California. Shepherd stated, “For many young people in crisis, the affirming work of The Trevor Project can mean the world. In my work as an entertainer & activist & especially as a mother, I’ve seen the profound freedom that comes with giving someone permission to be themselves. I’m incredibly humbled to accept the ‘Champion Award’ at TrevorLIVE LA & will continue to stand in solidarity with the LGBTQ community as an ally fighting for a more inclusive place for the next generation.” Amit Paley, CEO & Executive Director of The Trevor Project concluded, "Cybill Shepherd & the PwC Charitable Foundation consistently make a positive impact on the lives of LGBTQ people across the country & we're excited to honor their commitment to The Trevor Project & LGBTQ young people.” Zazie Beetz (Joker) & Sasheer Zamata (Saturday Night Live) will host the event with Jane Lynch & EJ Johnson as presenters & Grace VanderWaal will performer. They join previously announced “Youth Innovator Award” honoree Hayley Kiyoko.
