The interview AP Live conducted with actor Dan Radcliffe (Harry Potter) is now online, and features the young actor speaking to his involvement in the Trevor Project, a nationwide suicide prevention telephone helpline for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (GLBTQ) youth.  Available to watch right here, or at the bottom of this post, Mr. Radcliffe goes into detail about his feelings regarding homophobia and the effect hateful remarks against GLBTQ youth.  He also speaks to his own experiences and the Public Service Announcement Mr. Radcliffe filmed for the Trevor Project.

As Leaky has reported previously, the Trevor Project, which began in 1998, aims to work towards suicide prevention efforts among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning youth in the United States.  The organization comprises many ventures including "Dear Trevor, an online question-and-answer forum for young people with questions surrounding sexual orientation and gender identity; The Trevor Survival Kit, an educational kit distributed to schools and youth service providers to help educators facilitate discussions about suicide, gender identity and sexual orientation; and TrevorSpace, an online social networking community for LGBTQ youth, their friends and allies."

The 24/7 Trevor Helpline can be contacted in the United States by calling 866-4-U-TREVOR (866-488-7386).

I am impressed and grateful that he is contributing his time and services to helping and supporting this critical service and hope that his efforts do make a substantial difference in the lives of many teenagers struggling with issues of sexuality and gender.

Sigh – slow streaming where I am so I could hardly follow it – but good for Dan, standing up for acceptance and against homophobia! Dumbledore would be pleased to see it!

That is really great and considerate of Dan to do such a thing. I’m glad that he is doing something that could prevent teenagers from commiting suicide. Being the next generation it is our duty to fight for what is right!

I like that he is really interested in this issue and not only gives his image for the advertisement. That’s great! :)

This not the 1st time Dan has spoken up with his support of the Trevor Project. It is regrettably a vital organisation. It is heartwarming to see Dan continuing in his support and speaking out about it.
