She’s always up for a good time, and last night (December 2) Zoe Saldana attended the 2012 Trevor Live event hosted by The Trevor Project charity.
The “Avatar” actress donned a peach party dress and headed over to the Hollywood Palladium venue where a plethora of famous folks gathered to honor Trevor Hero Award winner Katy Perry.
Of their decision to highlight the “I Kissed a Girl” songstress, Trevor Project executive director/CEO explained, “We're honoring her because, really, she has done so much to empower youth.”
“A couple years ago when, unfortunately, a lot of young suicides made the news … and there was a very visible presence of suicide, Katy stepped up and was out there in the community, speaking against it.
“Her support of marriage equality -- and equality for everyone, really -- is one of the many reasons we're supporting her as our hero this year. Her song Firework is all about empowering youth to just be who they are, and that's what we try to do is make sure that when a young person reaches out to us. We are there to say, ‘The way you are is perfect. Just be the way you are.’”
