"Who now see these toxins set of saying. Oh that's terrible. They're saying what are we. What are we doing to fix this. Like the the amount of mobilization that i've seen just tick-tock alone nets that small like bit of comfort. Where i'm like okay. We're going to give this about forty eight hours because this person's either going to get fired or arrested. There's no way that it's going to just stay within this little section of the internet I think that that's sort of helping things a little bit in pushing the needle on actual progress. It's just that thing of like we've now dealt with administrations and the powers that do nothing. So now it's going to have to be up to us to raise some hell a little bit Now the i think things like the trevor project are going to be key in keeping in sort of facilitating. These safe spaces alongside Like these sorts of acts of justice But yeah the social media aspect is such a weird rubik's cube of good and awful least there was a there was a tweet like little nausea. Obviously he tweets a lot of really fascinating stuff and a lot of his attention grabbing he had one that has stuck with me in a way that it is like now embedded in my you know in my soul which is kinda funny because it was not say was a throwaway tweet but it was something where he someone some troll some critic. R- responded to him on twitter and said you're obviously insecure in your sexuality and that's why you have to keep making these extremely You know sexual obviously about the mattera video. And like and that's why you have to be so hyper sexual because you're so insecure about your sexuality and he shared the tweet which i love about little nauseous right. He likes shares his haters and then he said yes i am. I am tremendously insecure. I had to hide it for so much of my life. I've had such incredible You know guilt and torment inflicted on me by the world. And so i am. One hundred percent insecure about my sexuality and i'm trying to work it out and i'm doing it all in public and just.

"And you jump dolls So his mother started a foundation. The piler clemency foundation. And i called her down for what you thought of the trevor project and after we finished that part of the conversation we got talking about the social media. Stuff the that we're all talking about now and she raised such an important point. Which is that. It's kind of a double edged sword because if young people can get on. I'll use instagram. 'cause i'm most familiar with that right or talk i guess but they get on these platforms and they see on the positive side they say. Well there's a lot of people like me right or people who look like me. There's people who have my proclivities or or you know in any sense of bad is not just sexual orientation. The difficulty is if you are a young person who's living in a super conservative household that has no support for you or even open hostility for you sometimes to look at social media platforms and see other young people who are enjoying really accepting environments With a lot of friends and accepting families that can be simply torturous You know for for almost like the way. I would look at somebody my age. Who's a successful entrepreneur and driving sports car. I wish i owned right. That analogy. 'cause i don't need a sports park but we all need acceptance right so you know. Sometimes i think social media has been really great in terms of providing a community and trevor project has that too. It's called trevor space ended. it's like a. It's like their own little network. Write their own little online club and that stuff is incredibly important. But but jane clemente opened my eyes. I realize this particular at before that it can be really really hard for young. Lgbtq kids to look at other kids that are you know enjoying the things that they wished they had an it can also it can make them feel more cut off and more alienated and hence the importance of what trevor is doing..

"Sorry together very quickly and they actually had an eight hundred number up On the end of that. Hbo airing and that was the birth of the trevor project. And they've been around ever since that's so wild you know it's like you hear it and you just assume there was a real a real person but i still love that. 'cause it's still a very human very real evolution and i love the responsibility kind of baked into that thinking right of. Hey if we're going to put this out there we need to have resources available But it's it's grown pretty precipitously since then. I mean there are obviously quite a few Lgbtq organizations The that many of us have heard about. But what was it specifically about trevor project. That really jumped out to to our panel of selection jury for brand save. Well i mean you could argue that. Most any nonprofit is probably engaged in some kind of meaningful work. You could probably say that about Any lgbtq plus nonprofit that that you could select But let me throw a statistic or to it you Every forty five seconds in this country and lgbtq plus young person. I mean between age thirteen and twenty four attempt suicide which means there have been. Several of them attempted since the start of this podcast And according to a study that i found in the journal of the american medical association Forty percent think about that. Nearly half of lgbtq plus high school students have seriously considered suicide and overall. They're nearly four times more likely to attempt it. So when you consider that. Trevor is obviously not the only organization that addresses itself to the needs of lgbt young people but they are dedicated toward addressing not just preventing suicide. It's important to talk about this. They also Have the resources or access to the resources to get young people out of crisis situations as well so it's not just a pep talk on the phone. They hang up they really you know they really do a kind of a full process. Depending on the person's need they also do. These numbers blew me away One hundred and fifty thousand crisis contacts as they call it in by that. I mean a phone. Call a text chat whatever form it takes One hundred fifty thousand of them were handled last year. And that's i mean that number alone is is staggering. Half of those calls from kids under eighteen. A third of them were from people of color and Trevor has close to eight hundred volunteers. That are They are around the clock and You know if if somebody is in crisis at two o'clock in the morning into pika and sends a text they will get an answer right away. So i don't know how else to make a case for how important that work is. Yeah that's really phenomenal. And and it feels like we're in such a can. It can be a very heavy reality of how much How how more much more aware we are right now of the extent of this like. I don't think it's. I don't think it's not like it's a new trend. Is the the most the most depressing part of these kinds of of stats. Stories is the fact that it's always been this. Bad right yeah they david you raise such an important point when i was Hard to imagine this..

"What. I love about this campaign and a few others that came out last year specifically is that it's a great reminder for the ad industry that retro nostalgia does not have to mean white. Suburban nostalgia right like it's i. I like ferris bueller. Lot of folks fares bueller. We've had enough ferris bueller. There have been so damn many ferris bueller ads and references and reboots. And i'm like we get it. We get it. You grew up in the suburbs. Then you're white like age. Well i was a brat movie of a friend of a friend. So yeah it's it's cool to see this Sort of get it swings again especially like not so long after things like vaccine thing where we're just sort of getting this opportunity to appreciate a memories like you said that aren't necessarily prescribe to whiteness of like bees were like huge pop culture paragon. Not just within like a singular community. But i don't know about anybody else but there was a time where you could not turn on the radio and not here There it is at least five times from your home to the grocery store. Thirty minutes away And so you you have that that chance to re live that in a very cool way and like you said a way that wasn't mocking appreciative is really stellar.

"At malls and schools and houses of worship and country music festivals. And all these other things does draw attention but it actually happens every day all throughout the whole united states. You bring up a good point about that too. I do think that that the media should be paying a little bit more attention to some of the smaller events and really have conversations more about The topics there in about whether it's like domestic spousal abuse as well as like people with backgrounds as domestic abusers and whatnot who end up getting their hands on on firearms. Even you know people with you know with criminal records that get you know that. Get their hands on firearms to and that's another thing that i know the article also mentions is about how nobody is thinking to pay attention to those details because that those kinds of preventative measures such as you know bans on people with criminal backgrounds can make a difference in the article does go onto express that it it can make a very positive influence in reducing the risk against our community and against all communities in general. That's right short our mission statement. We talked about how this is a multi monster this gun violence in the united states. It's legislators it's the nra it's not sufficient mental health for people who are vulnerable and could succumb to committing violence themselves and also to the vulnerable communities people have colored religious minorities our community lgbt community.

"The lgbtq community. The article is very efficient in mentioning above all else that on a per capita basis. Lgbt people are more likely to be targets of hate crime than any other group in america. I'm chevron thank you sean. And not only are. Lgbt people more likely to be victims of hate crimes but young members of our community are also more likely to commit suicide and since half of all gun deaths in the united states are suicides. It's clear that suicide by gun is a serious problem for our overall. Lgbt community that's right. The same culture that fosters narrative against our community whether through religious oppression or gun violence also contributes to the disproportionately high percentage of suicide rates by gun violence. These are the same people in society. Who would hate us enough to shoot us who are also that we would also go out and do it ourselves. Yes sean. But the proliferation of guns in our country also affects gay people in other ways. Anti-lgbt hate crimes are more likely to be aggravated assaults than he crimes directed against other communities in our country. Yes and the article also mentions how despite all these statistics these horrifying examples. There is still something we can do. Guns are extremely pervasive in our society. Accesses high in many areas and among many marginalized communities so at the very least managing to limit access through sensible gun. Laws background checks and red flag laws. It is proven to to reduce the amount of harm gun violence inflicts upon our community. Well what we can do something. The gay community is good at doing and that is taking to the streets direct action group. Which is what gives against guns is all about. This is true. I'm sure you have your own reasons for joining gays against guns. I know one of my reasons personally. Is you know.

The Trevor Project's CEO Amit Paley talks LGBTQ challenges today

"Let's first start with the positive here. The all of the things that have happened since stonewall for the better for LGBT LGBTQ people. What do you think are some of the biggest hurdles that LGBTQ people have overcome since stonewall? There've been a number of advances for LGBTQ people both on the, the legal and rights front as well as the cultural front more Americans now say that they know someone who is LGBTQ than ever before. We see representations of LGBTQ people in the media and, and in political rally. They're also have been a number of advances on the on the legal front, that gay and lesbian, bisexual people have the right to marry someone of the same gender. There have been changes in laws around discrimination, that have helped people on the state level in particular, and so that there have been growing writes, even as we know there's still a lot of challenges in a lot of work so left to do well in, let's talk about some of the challenges, and especially the ones that your organization, the Trevor project focuses on, which is with LGBTQ youth, and specifically suicide will tell us about the problem. First of all. Well, LGBTQ young people are, are more than four times more likely to attempt suicide than their peers. We just did a national survey on LGBTQ youth mental health, which found that thirty nine percent of LGBTQ youth, have seriously considered attempting suicide in the past twelve months, and that that amount is even higher for transgender non binary youth. And why do you think that is there, there are a number of different reasons why that's the case? But some of the reasons are the, the rejection and the discrimination, and hateful rhetoric that a lot of LGBTQ young people face every day both in their community. Sometimes that's from their family or in their schools or their faith communities. There's also, especially in the past few years been increasing heedful rhetoric happening from the highest levels of the of the US government and political figures that ends up having an effect because words, really, do not are, especially with young people will, let's listen to one person one young person named rain. Grayson. Who spoke recently about how the Trevor project helped when suicide was being considered I chose to reach out to the Trevor project through chat, instead of the phone because I couldn't stand the sound of my own voice, and I thought hearing it might drive me straight off the yellow ledge. When someone responded, I didn't let on that I was about to kill myself, but I told them that I felt alone I logged off fairly quickly, but not before I was told I wasn't alone, which might sound like a cliche, until you really do feel like there's no one that rain Grayson is transgender.

And so she got the hero award at Trevor live this week, and it was a fundraiser to benefit the Trevor project, and she's up there. She accepts her award. She gives her speech and she thanked Ashley, and what she said it was just so it was so great. So cute. She said, I also have another very special woman in this room to think. And you know who you are she's on, she's one of the people who helped me love myself when I needed it most, and I really needed it. She showed me what real love is and showed me how to accept it, which is a lot harder than I thought I love you sprinkles. Oh tearing up it's I don't know why. But when I melt every time I hear.

"So you can call them whenever and so it's it's about an I think that says so much about mental health and generous trying to move on a Goshi Asians with mental health away from crisis points and having so you can call up Trevor or we can go on their website and go on the chat boat, if you just Google Trevor project and just talked about how you feeling maybe it was something that happened six weeks ago, and you don't want to happen again. Or maybe he was sucked into a wave machine. Maybe we're soaks into a machine when he was six. Yeah. And you'd like an attorney. Yeah. That's what I think is interesting, but what this place represents. It's about the future of mental health specifically, they're looking after people at a crisis point eight, maybe no almost lighthearted interview. However, I think it's very important. And I was really thrilled that we went to meet them, and it kind of tied him because we didn't know, but choice of I'm was they were his sort of charity on the tool that he people would donate to them. So it was a nice kind of Lincoln, which we didn't. No. Well, it's nice because the Samaritans are doing amazing things hit but the numbers for LGBTQ plus teens and suicide are huge, right? And they are specifically focused on those kids. So we we had to go into them because they're doing some of the most brilliant work in America around the key plus community. So we hope for it down to somewhere in Manhattan to see Brooke and Christina who both worked at the Trevor project and were a typical example or whatnot amazing place is they were really lovely warm people, and because we're sticky beaks the pair of us we had to get to know them. I I'm very fortunate. I grew up in Canada, originally, and and progressive communities, and I had accepting family actually, have a gay brother almost because at a relatively smooth experience coming out at sixteen. I don't know. I kinda wanna harness that privilege and help others. I think that's one of the reasons why I do the work that I do. Because I know absolutely. That's not the case for everybody. So if I have a little bit more ability to give to others. I I try to I didn't always accept my identity. I acutely remember times that I wish I wasn't attracted to men, and that was really distressing. And I saw myself as somebody who would just never have relationships. I would always keep it inside. I remember those thoughts, but eventually made a close group of friends. No one in that group was was queer. But I felt like I did have the friends support to be a bit more on. It's fantastic.
