Last night, Jane Lynch hosted TrevorLIVE, the Trevor Project's awards gala, and Cason Crane, the young, openly gay mountaineer and founder of the Rainbow Summits Project, was honored with the Trevor Youth Innovator Award. Crane recently became the first openly gay mountaineer to scale the highest peaks on all seven continents.
Wells Fargo was honored with the Trevor 20/20 Visionary Award, which was accepted by Michelle Lee, the company’s Northeast Community Banking regional president.
Directed by Michael Wilson (Broadway’s The Trip to Bountiful), TrevorLIVE featured Jane Lynch (Glee, current Broadway revival of Annie) as the “Voice of God,” comedy by Julie Halston, and musical performances by Billy Porter (Tony-winner of Kinky Boots), Jessica Sanchez (singer from American Idol), and the PS 22 Youth Chorus.
The Trevor Project also honored Cindy Hensley McCain (pictured below with Trevor Project Executive Director Abbe Land) with the Trevor Hero Award, which was presented by her daughter, Meghan McCain.
