Matthew Morris & Betty Buckley Team Up to Battle Gay Teen Suicide

Benefit Poster & Matthew Morris

We love it when barihunks do community work and we have promoted Chris Herbert and Erwin Schrott for their recent efforts. Add barihunk Matthew Morris to the mix, as he will be joining Broadway legend Betty Buckley in a benefit for The Trevor Project. The gala will be on Monday, November 22nd at 8 p.m. at St. Paul the Apostle Church at West 60th and Columbus in New York City.

“This concert is for those kids who feel that they have no one to talk to, no one who can understand, no one who cares," said Matthew Morris, who is also one of the producers of the event. "There are many people out there who care deeply. This night is about showing that care in a concrete way by gathering people from all walks of life: artists, members of the faith community, business people, straight people, gay people, men, women, old, and young who will show up and say, ‘You are not alone.'"

The Trevor Project is the leading national organization focused on crisis and suicide prevention efforts among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth. The organization was founded in 1998 by three filmmakers whose film, “Trevor,” a comedy/drama about a gay teenager who attempts suicide, received the 1994 Academy Award® for Best Short Film (Live Action).

Along with the concert, a silent auction will offer items from Tom Ford, Hermes of Paris, and Zac Posen, as well as special items from Gary Beach, Christine Brewer, Chelsea Handler, Scott Nevins, Billy Porter, and other Broadway performers.

General Admission tickets are $25, and premium seats are $100. Tickets can be purchased in advance by visiting You are Not Alone.

Here is a clip of Morris performing "I think it's going to rain today."
