The Trevor Hero Award honors Katy Perry for empowering youth and increasing visibility and understanding of the LGBT community. As an ally for the community, Perry has supported equality and the freedom to marry. Perry strives to let youth know they have value, and by being themselves they can be anything. “Everyone deserves a wonderful, fulfilled life. Our sexual orientation or gender identity doesn’t change the spark and beauty within,” said Perry. “I’m honored that The Trevor Project has selected me to receive the Trevor Hero Award. Their work has inspired me since 2010, and I know they help save lives.” [The Trevor Project]
