Despite not taking home any awards last night at the AMAs, pop icon Lady Gaga will be honored with the Trevor Hero award on Sunday, Dec. 4 at Trevor Live. Taking place at the Hollywood Palladium, the Trevor Project is a national organization that provides crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to LGBT youth.

The evening is an annual night of comedy, music and awards that raises money for the Trevor Project.

“Our young people are at the center of a health crisis, and vocal leaders like Lady Gaga and technology leaders like Google Inc. have stepped up to help change our culture. Our honorees are working with The Trevor Project to make a better today and a brighter tomorrow for youth. We are proud to honor Lady Gaga with the Trevor Hero Award and Google Inc. with the Trevor 2020 award for their work to help young people express their true selves with pride,” says David McFarland, interim Executive Director and CEO of the Trevor Project.

The show will also feature guest appearances from Fergie, Mary J. Blige, Miley Cyrus, Queen Latifah, and more
