"...a little gem."
--New York Times
"TREVOR pierced the heart with a portrait of a gay boy coping with his sexuality."
"This remarkable film is not just about what it's like to grow up gay...It's about anyone who has ever felt different."
Set in 1981, the film follows what happens when Trevor, a 13-year-old passionate Diana Ross and musical theatre fan, becomes friends with a hunky school classmate named Pinky Faraday and word spreads that he must be gay. Mocked and friendless, Trevor attempts to kill himself in a scene that is both heart wrenching and darkly funny. But Trevor is no victim. By the end it's clear his enthusiasm and developing sense of self will always see him through.
