The nonprofit event will also feature Leigh Silverman, Tim Federle and Andrew Rannells.

The Trevor Project is set to honor Tony winner Jordan Roth and husband Richie Jackson at the TrevorLIVE New York benefit on June 13 at the Marriott Marquis.

Abbe Land, CEO of the Trevor Project, praised the couple as “leaders in our community who have been dedicated to our mission to end suicide for all LGBTQ youth.”

The Trevor Project is a suicide prevention and crisis intervention nonprofit that is committed to advocating for LGBTQ youth. The group has chosen to honor the couple for their extraordinary commitment to both the theatrical arts and service in the LGBTQ community.

“While we are so grateful to accept the Trevor Project’s Hero Award, we know that the true heroes are Trevor’s counselors, volunteers and staff who are literally saving the lives of tens of thousands of LGBTQ young people in crisis every year. We are honored to be celebrating them and the world they are creating, one call at a time.”

The night will showcase both music and comedy with input and performances from Leigh Silverman (Violet, Well), Tim Federle (Tuck Everlasting, Better Nate Than Ever), Harvey Fierstein (Kinky Boots), Judith Light (Transparent) and Andrew Rannells (The Book of Mormon, Girls).
