Rosco x ProAdv
Rosco and ProAdv teamed up to do a collaboration on a series of glass gobos to celebrate the entire LGBTQIA+ community and build a collection of gobos for each pride flag.
50% of Proceeds from the Pride Collection all summer
will be donated to The Trevor Project
The Trevor Project is the world’s largest suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning) young people. The organization works to save young lives by providing support through free and confidential suicide prevention and crisis intervention programs on platforms where young people spend their time: a 24/7 phone lifeline, chat, text and soon-to-come integrations with social media platforms. The organization also runs TrevorSpace, the world’s largest safe space social networking site for LGBTQ youth, and operates innovative education, research, and advocacy programs.
Why The Trevor Project?
A majority of youth choose to contact The Trevor Project rather than other suicide prevention providers because the organization is LGBTQ affirming or a trusted provider of crisis services. 90% of young people who reach out to Trevor experience de-escalation from suicidal thoughts. LGBTQ youth who report having at least one accepting adult were 40% less likely to report a suicide attempt in the past year. The Trevor Project aims to always be there for LGBTQ youth in crisis with a clear message: they should be proud of who they are and that they are not alone.
Why is this work important?
Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death among young people. Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth are more than 4 times more likely to attempt suicide than their peers. LGBTQ youth from highly rejecting families are 8 times more likely to attempt suicide than youth from accepting families. Up to 50 percent of all trans people have made a suicide attempt - many before the age of 25. The Trevor Project estimates that more than 1.8 million LGBTQ youth between the ages of 13 and 24 in the U.S. seriously consider suicide each year and could benefit from its services.
What resources does The Trevor Project offer?
TrevorLifeline — The only nationwide, 24/7 crisis and suicide prevention lifeline offering free and confidential counseling for LGBTQ youth, available at 1.866.488.7386
