Added DiffLines:

''Trevor'' is a 1994 short film directed by Peggy Rajski.

Trevor is a boy in his early teens living somewhere in suburbia in 1981. Trevor's once-normal life starts to change when puberty hits and he begins figuring out that he's different from other boys. He likes ballet, the theater, and Music/DianaRoss songs. He's not particularly interested in girls, but he really likes hanging out with his friend Pinky, who's a jock.

Trevor realizes that he's gay. When everyone else finds out that he's gay, Trevor is ostracized. Despairing, Trevor starts contemplating suicide.
