Help The Trevor Project And You Could Win A Trip To 'Boy Erased' Premiere In LA

Here’s a total win-win: donate as little as $10 to The Trevor Project via Omaze, and you could find yourself on the red carpet with the cast and creators of the highly anticipated film, Boy Erased.

Here's the official synopsis for the movie:

Boy Erased tells the story of Jared (Lucas Hedges), the son of a Baptist pastor in a small American town, who is outed to his parents (Oscar winners Nicole Kidman and Russell Crowe) at age 19.

Jared is faced with an ultimatum: attend a conversion therapy program – or be permanently exiled and shunned by his family, friends, and faith. Boy Erased is the true story of one young man’s struggle to find himself while being forced to question every aspect of his identity.

To take part in this uber-cool opportunity, click here to head over to Omaze, an online platform that democratizes traditional auction-giving by offering everyone the chance to have a once-in-a-lifetime experience for as little as $10.

Each dollar you donate becomes an entry in the Boy Erased campaign.

One lucky winner (and their favorite +1) will be flown to Los Angeles and put up at a 4-star hotel before hitting the red carpet with the movie’s director Joel Edgerton, and stars Lucas Hedges (Academy Award nominee) and Troye Sivan at the star-studded premiere on October 29.

Plus, you’ll get to meet the author of the memoir the film is based on, Garrard Conley.

After that? It’s showtime! You’ll head into the theater to see the film surrounded by the incredible cast and crew that made it.

Instinct has reported on Boy Erased extensively here, here, here and here, in anticipation of the film’s release.

Through the Omaze platform, people from more than 170 countries have donated to over 150 charities, driving new levels of awareness and raising more money for charities.

With this campaign, you’ll be helping The Trevor Project which aims to end suicide among gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and questioning young people.
