The Trevor Project, the leading suicide prevention organization for LGBTQ young people, today released Learn with Love, a documentary short film elevating the stories of three transgender young people and their relationships with the people who love them. The documentary is part of The Trevor Project’s enduring advocacy initiative to cultivate public awareness and acceptance of transgender and nonbinary experiences, bolster messages of support and love for young people who hold these identities, and ultimately work toward ending suicide among LGBTQ young people.
The documentary short film features the compelling stories of three transgender young people and adults in their lives: Kaiden (he/him pronouns) and his mom; Skyler (she/her pronouns) and her grandfather; and Lyndon (he/him pronouns) and a pastor who took him in after his family turned their backs. Through each story, viewers get to observe a different side of the transgender experience – one that illustrates the tenacity and resilience of transgender young people and explores what’s possible when people who love them are able to learn and evolve. Rather than dwell on the persistent barriers that so many transgender young people face, this documentary explores the breakthroughs – underscoring the importance of openness, education, and love as a basic human need.
