Seattle vocalist Katy Bourne will be performing “An Evening of Cole Porter- A Benefit for the Trevor Project” this Saturday, October 1 at Egan’s.
The Trevor Project is a national organization that provides crisis intervention, suicide prevention and advocacy for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth. The Trevor Project was started in 1998 in conjunction with the airing of “Trevor,” and HBO film about a 13-year-old boy who was ostracized after word gets out at his school that he is gay. The Trevor Project is not only a lifeline for countless young people but it is also a vital resource for parents, educators, policymakers and anyone else who is concerned about the rights, safety and dignity of LGBTQ youth. The mission of the Trevor Project is “to end suicide among LGBTQ youth by providing life-saving and life-affirming resources including our nationwide, 24/7 crisis intervention lifeline, digital community and advocacy/educational programs that create a safe, supportive and positive environment for everyone.”
For this concert, Bourne will be performing Cole Porter classics such as “Night & Day” and “I Get a Kick Out of You,” as well as more obscure material from this great American composer. Katy’s band features Randy Halberstadt on piano, Clipper Anderson on bass and Steve Korn on drums.
