Among those in attendance at Monday night's TrevorLIVE event, which supported The Trevor Project, were Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Jenni "JWoww" Farley, who vouched their support for the LGBTQ community.
In her speech at TrevorLIVE, which was hosted at New York's Chelsea Piers, the former Jersey Shore star said, "Me and Jenni weren't exactly the best role models, but now that I'm a mom, I'm so grateful for The Trevor Project to support the LGBT youth so they have someone there for them because I'm praying I have a gay little boy one day."
Farley said that she and Polizzi are big supporters of the LGBTQ community.
"We're huge supporters of the LGBT community...so we would do anything to help them and to protect them," the 27-year-old said. "We feel like moms when it comes to our gays—we really do."
Although Farley isn't a mom yet, Polizzi recently gave birth to her first child, a boy she named Lorenzo, in August 2012, which she says has changed her instincts.
"When we go out, I feel like I take care of her (Jenni) now, and that's weird."
Also supporting The Trevor Project, an organization founded in 1998 that provides crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to LGBTQ youth, was American Idol Season 11 runner-up Jessica Sanchez, who performed a song with the PS 22 Youth Chorus at the event.
Philanthropist and wife of Arizona senator John McCain, Cindy McCain, was honored with the Trevor Hero Award, which was presented to her by her daughter, Meghan, who was overcome with emotion during her speech.
"I'm very pleased that my daughter is here to give the award to me, number one, because I really became into this issue because of her," McCain said. "...I'm by no means a hero but to be cast in that order is something that I never thought I would be. I'm very pleased."
