Amandla Stenberg and Lauren Jauregui hit the orange carpet while arriving for the Trevor Project’s TrevorLIVE LA 2018 held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday night (December 2) in Beverly Hills, Calif.
The two stars were joined by Josie Totah, AJ Michalka and her longtime friend, Raymond Braun.
Lauren kicked off the show with a stripped-down performance of her debut single, “Expectations”.
Later on at the event, Amandla accepted the Youth Innovator Award and reflected on coming out in the public eye.
“Often times who we are is postulated in the context of pain, shame, and tragedy, and although that may be a facet of our experiences I do not feel that it is by any means the totality of them or how I experience being gay,” they shared on stage. “I find that understanding so limiting and inaccurate when I know that if anything we are the opposite; we are joy and light. We are the sacred unraveling of damaging fabrications who reveal the power of truth through love. We are unapologetic expressions of divinity and exuberance.”
The Trevor Project is the world’s largest organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) young people.
