Why? Now more than ever it is imperative we show our transgender and non-binary youth that they are seen, accepted and loved. Trans youth who go without affirmation face increased risks of depression, substance abuse and suicide attempts. Even if you don’t know any trans or non-binary youth in your community, hosting a reading is an incredibly powerful way to show your support.

About Zachary: Zachary Mallory is a LGBTQ+ advocate who focuses on Mental Health and Suicide Prevention especially amongst LGBTQ+ youth. Zachary is a National Human Rights Campaign Youth Ambassador and is a member of The Trevor Project National Youth Ambassador Council.
