Radcliffe Supports Gay Group With 'Generous' Donation
DANIEL RADCLIFFE has shown his dedication to the gay community once again - by handing over a "generous" donation to homosexual support group The Trevor Project.
The Harry Potter star has long stood up for same-sex rights, insisting he finds homophobes "disgusting and stupid" after being surrounded by gay friends while growing up.
The actor has now cemented his support by handing over funds to The Trevor Project, an organisation which helps gay youngsters who are struggling with their sexuality.
The charity's chief executive Charles Robbins says, "He is setting a meaningful example for millions of young people around the world by embracing diversity and demonstrating that he cares deeply about the well-being of LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer/questioning) youth."
Meanwhile, Radcliffe adds, "It's extremely distressing to consider that in 2009 suicide is a top three killer of young people, and it's truly devastating to learn that LGBTQ youth are up to four times more likely to attempt suicide than their heterosexual peers. It's vitally important that young people understand they are not alone and, perhaps even more important, that their young lives have real value."
