Daniel Radcliffe will be honored by The Trevor Project with the Trevor Hero Award during “Trevor LIVE” at Capitale (130 Bowery, NY, NY) on Monday, June 27, 2011. The annual show benefits the life-saving work of The Trevor Project and will also honor Ernst & Young LLP with the Trevor 2020 Award. The event’s presenting sponsor is ING.
Each year following Pride, The Trevor Project, the leading crisis intervention and suicide prevention organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth, brings together top talent to celebrate and honor leaders and role models for LGBTQ young people. This high-profile event has honored actors and comedians including Kathy Griffin, Neil Patrick Harris and Vanessa Williams and corporate trailblazers such as Levi Strauss & Co., Wells Fargo Bank and CNN for their support of LGBTQ youth.
Hear what Danielle Radcliffe has to say about gay rights after the jump…“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,” said Radcliffe. “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.”
A star of stage and screen, Radcliffe has been involved with The Trevor Project since 2009, appearing in public service announcements and making public statements in support of LGBTQ youth. The Trevor Hero Award recognizes an individual who serves as an inspiration to sexual minority youth and increases visibility and understanding of the LGBTQ community.
