Kathy Griffin and Chris Colfer Bring The Inappropriate Funny 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.

    The Trevor Project’s 15th Annual Trevor Live Gala host Kathy Griffin talks about her fabulous dress that *cough* Chris Colfer designed, and shares that laughter is the best medicine.

    “She’s so great. I really think she exemplifies everything that’s great about this cause and this organization,” Griffin says of Hero Award honoree Jane Lynch. “And if Jane Lynch can’t put you in a good mood in dark times, then I don’t know who can.”

    As host of the gala, she says, “I’m going to bring the inappropriate funny.” And for the viewers at home who may be struggling, she adds, “I do believe laughter is the best medicine.” For example, Chris Colfer will watch Elaine Stritch videos to cheer himself up.

    As Griffin notes, “The unsung thing about the arts is that they can really pull somebody out of a dark, dark times.”
