Trevi has been a longstanding ally and supporter of the LGBTQ community across the globe. In June 2017, she worked with Billboard to pen a love letter to the LGBTQ community for Pride Month. Trevi, who’s been an avid advocate for human rights and and equality, has used her music to inspire and make a call to action for communities to take action and have their voices heard in support of beliefs, including gender equality, anti-bullying and domestic violence/abuse. Trevi produced multiple hit tracks in support of the LGBTQ community, including «Todos Me Miran», which recently was named one of Billboard’s “Top 50 Best Latin Songs of All Time”, and “Abranse Perras” which praises individuals who have the bravery to show the world who they really are, regardless of what others think. In 2019, she appeared at the Mister Gay Pride event in Madrid, Spain and previously performed at San Diego’s Pride festival in California. Gloria Trevi has deeply connected with her LGBTQ and LatinX fans and has served as an inspiration for millions across the globe.
GLAAD serves as a resource to Spanish and English-language Latinx media outlets to ensure fair, accurate and inclusive representations of LGBTQ people.
In an op-ed published by The Advocate, GLAAD President and CEO Sarah Kate Elli laid out the stakes for LGBTQ people this election. GLAAD is calling on all LGBTQ people and allies to register and vote. Earlier this year, GLAAD launched its 100 Days of Action campaign to call on the LGBTQ community and allies to register and pledge to vote. GLAAD will also be highlighting the stakes for the LGBTQ community through the lens of LGBTQ communities of color, the Latinx community, youth, and our vast network of GLAAD Media Institute alumni. In addition, Trevi recently published an inspirational op-ed piece for LGBTQ, LatinX and all communities on ET Online making a call to action on the importance of having our voices heard through voting.
