Harry Potter’s Daniel Radcliffe was honored by the Trevor Project for his work in preventing LGBT teen suicides. TSM just recently celebrated Dumbledore during LGBT History Month and it is now such a pleasure to honor Radcliffe with the HWA. Radcliffe has consistently used his celebrity to help with issues around social justice for the LGBT community. Upon receiving the award from the Trevor Project, Radcliffe said:
The fact that I’m able to help with something like this makes me very, very proud. It’s a huge honor, and it’s lovely of them to give it to me. I’ll say it again later, but the real heroes are the people who are staffing those call centers and picking up the phones saving lives every single day.
Bravo, Daniel Radcliffe. We all look forward to the many ways you will continue to contribute to making the world a better place for all.
