Sarah Michelle Gellar Talks Struggling Through Her Teen Years At TrevorLIVE 2013

Sarah Michelle Gellar Talks Struggling Through Her Teen Years At TrevorLIVE 2013

  • On Sunday, December 8, our own Shira Lazar and Tyler Oakley hosted the red carpet for The Trevor Project‘s “Trevor Live” gala - the 15th annual, star-studded event that raises awareness and funds for programs that help LGBTQ teens in crisis.

    Sarah Michelle Gellar and James Wolk talk about the importance of having a friend, like each other, to turn to when in need and how technology is going to evolve to help those struggling.

    Before she was slaying vampires, Gellar was making it through her teen years. And it wasn't all that easy. "Growing up and being a teenager - it's the hardest experience that I've ever been through in my entire life," she says. "Being different is not socially accepted at that age. I think the most important thing that we're trying to teach this generation is that being different is cool. It's what makes us unique. It's what makes us important."

    She also praises the Trevor Project for giving teens a place to turn to if they need help, and for keeping up with changes in technology, like their texting services. "So much can be prevented just by having someone to talk to."
