"The Trevor Hero Award, announced Monday, recognizes 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."
Daniel's reaction:
"It's fantastic," Radcliffe told. "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 honor."

"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.
