Trevor (1994) is an Academy Award-winning short film about a gay 13-year-old boy who attempts suicide because of how he is treated. It still holds up after all of these years and personally, I think it should be required viewing in schools.
Trevor inspired the creation of the Trevor Project, a 24/7 crisis and suicide prevention helpline for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth.
Editor's note - For those who are interested, Trevor does have a happy ending. Sorry if I ruined it for you but those who read these Know Your LGBT History segments know that when I focus on movies, I always feel it's more important to emphasize when a gay-themed movie has a happy ending. Goodness knows we catch enough hell from real life than to sit through a gay-themed movie with a sad ending.)
