Jookms Releases 'Absolute Brightness' Video To Support The Trevor Project

To support The Trevor Project, JOOKMS is excited to share Randy Redd's Absolute Brightness. When Redd heard that calls to the Trevor Lifeline had nearly doubled since the pandemic lockdown began he reached out to over 30 singers to record his song, inspired by Trevor Co-Founder, writer and activist, James Lecesne's novel and solo show The Absolute Brightness of Leonard Pelkey.

Sung by George Abud, Jamie Barton, Donna Lynne Champlin, Jeffrey Cornelius, Barrett Foa, Zach Infante, Rachel Bay Jones, LOLO, Justin Gregory Lopez, Javier Muñoz and more, Absolute Brightness was produced by Kiarra Goldberg, edited by Steve Boghossian, and is presented by JOOKMS.

Founded in 1998 by the creators of the Academy Award-winning short film TREVOR, The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer & questioning (LGBTQ) young people under 25.
