HollywoodNews.com: Daniel Radcliffe, star of the Harry Potter films and longtime advocate for the LGBST community, will be honored for his efforts this June when he receives The Trevor Project’s Hero Award.
Radcliffe, who has worked with the organization since 2009, has been a vocal supporter of the LGBST community, and his work with The Trevor Project has included public-service announcements promoting the organization’s services, which includes the only nationwide accredited suicide prevention hotline geared towards LGBSTQ youth.
