Katy was honored last night at the Trevor Live event for her work in empowering youth groups and she looked stunning. The CEO said of Katy:
“A couple years ago when, unfortunately, a lot of young suicides made the news … and there was a very visible presence of suicide, Katy stepped up and was out there in the community, speaking against it.
“Her support of marriage equality — and equality for everyone, really — is one of the many reasons we’re supporting her as our hero this year. Her song Firework is all about empowering youth to just be who they are, and that’s what we try to do is make sure that when a young person reaches out to us. We are there to say, ‘The way you are is perfect. Just be the way you are.’”
