Drag Race queens donate time to Trevor Project

RuPaul's Drag Race Season 11 queens A'Keria Chanel Davenport, Soju, and Silky Nutmeg Ganache spent a day volunteering at LGBTQ organization The Trevor Project. The queens participated in a very timely discussion about mental health and online bullying where they shared their different experiences both as bullies who were projecting their own unhappiness onto others and being bullied for who they are. 

Following the discussion, the queens received information about crisis hotline volunteers . It is no secret that RuPaul's Drag Race has served as a platform to discuss these important timely issues facing the LGBTQ community and working with The Trevor Project gave these queens an opportunity to further shine a light on these topics.

The Trevor Project was founded in 1998 and focuses on suicide prevention efforts among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning youth. Through a toll-free telephone number, it operates The Trevor Lifeline, a confidential service that offers trained counselors.

The Trevor Project has trained counselors are to support these youth 24/7. If you are a young person in crisis, feeling suicidal, or in need of a safe and judgment-free place to talk, call the TrevorLifeline now at 1-866-488-7386.

The discussions are incredibly timely as the queens touch upon issues and pressures that everyone can relate to. 

September is National Suicide Awareness Month with September 10 being designated as World Suicide Prevention Day.
