Daniel Radcliff will be honored by Trevor Project
Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe, about to open on Broadway in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, will be the recipient of the Trevor Project’s Hero Award.
The young actor made a public service announcement and a large donation to the organization that aims to end suicides among LGBT youth. He will be recognized at the June 27 Trevor Live ceremony in New York City as “an individual who serves as an inspiration to sexual minority youth and increases visibility and understanding of the LGBTQ community.”
Radcliffe said in a statement: “Young people deserve to live in a world that accepts them for who they are, regardless of a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity. As an ally, I’m honored that The Trevor Project has selected me to receive the Trevor Hero Award, and will continue to raise awareness about the life-saving resources they offer for LGBTQ youth.”
Here is an interview he did with Associated Press talking about the honor:
