ACTOR DANIEL RADCLIFFE TO BE HONORED BY TREVOR PROJECT


Film and Broadway actor Daniel Radcliffe, who has been also doing alot of work with The Trevor Project, an organization that deals with suicide prevention efforts among gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered youths will be honored with the organization’s Hero Award at a ceremony in New York in June.




Past winners include actor Nathan Lane, screenwriter Dustin Lance Black and former Miss America and “Ugly Betty” actress Vanessa Williams.  
 

“It’s fantastic,” Radcliffe told The Associated Press. “The fact that they think of what I’ve done by promoting awareness of the Trevor Project itself and the issues that it works to promote and help is a great honor.”


“The people that are doing the heroic things are the people answering phones 24 hours a day in the Trevor call centers,” he said. “I think that out of everything that I’ve done so far in my career, I think this is absolutely one of the most important, if not the most important, thing that I’m associated with.”

The Harry Potter actor, currently starring in Broadway's revival of “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying,” says audience members often acknowledge his work with the organization.

“I meet people at the stage door every night that thank me for what I’m doing with the Trevor project,” he said proudly.

Congrats Daniel for all your selfless contributions to the LGBTQ community and on an award that's well deserved.
