Trevor is a 1994 American short film directed by Peggy Rajski, produced by Randy Stone and Peggy Rajski, and written by James Lecesne. Set in 1981, the film follows what happens to 13-year-old Trevor, a Diana Ross fan, when his crush on a schoolmate named Pinky Faraday gets discovered.

It tied for an Academy Award in 1995 for Best Short Subject with Franz Kafka's It's a Wonderful Life.[1][2]

In 1998, director Peggy Rajski brought fellow filmmakers Randy Stone and James Lecesne together to found The Trevor Project, a 24/7 crisis and suicide prevention helpline for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth.
