Trevor Project to Honour Daniel Radcliffe
I am out, and posting from my ‘phone, but this is too important to leave until tonight.
The Trevor Hero Award recognises a person who serves as an inspiration to sexual minority youths and increases visibility and understanding of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning, or LGBTQ, community.
“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 honour.”
While privileged to be a part of this group carrying forward the organization’s life-saving work, Radcliffe said he feels a little bashful about it, too.
“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.”
Radcliffe, currently appearing in the Broadway 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.
