Balenciaga is partnering with The Trevor Project in its mission to prevent LGBTQ youth suicide. Fashion can be useful beyond its practical purposes by highlighting important issues like this one.
For more than 22 years, The Trevor Project has worked to save young LGBTQ lives through 24/7, confidential crisis counseling via phone, text and online chat in the United States. In addition to on-the-ground advocacy, mental health research, and public awareness and education to help youth and adults support the LGBTQ young people in their lives, the organization has invested in international community-building with its TrevorSpace program.
In recent years, many countries have experienced a decline in LGBTQ acceptance. Funds raised through the sale of this Balenciaga product will help address the immediate need for life-affirming peer support for LGBTQ youths. The Trevor Project and TrevorSpace offer safe and scalable solutions that can save lives.
For each of this Balenciaga product sold, 15 percent of sales price will be donated to The Trevor Project.
