The AP is reporting that Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) will receive the Trevor Project's Hero Award at a ceremony in New York City this June.

Radcliffe has been a strong supporter of the Trevor Project for the past couple of years, an organization "for suicide prevention efforts among gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered youths."

In response to the announcement, Radcliffe told the AP:

"It's fantastic. 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 Trevor Hero Award is presented to individuals who have served as an inspiration and increased visibility and understanding of the LGBTQ community. Past recipients include Vanessa Williams, Nathan Lane, and screenwriter Dustin Lance Black.

It wasn’t so many years ago that taking up such a cause would be regarded as ‘sticking your neck out’ and jeopardizing your career. It’s heartening to know that attitudes are finally beginning to change. By the time the young people of Dan’s generation are running things, anti-gay discrimination should finally be a thing of the past. Huzzah!

And what’s extra-nice about this is the fact that Dan himself is probably a little embarrassed to be so honored, figuring that his contribution has been minor compared to the number of hours that other, unsung people put into the cause. But there is definitely great value is being willing to be the figurehead, when you are a public persona widely admired by youngsters.

Now, if only every kid who reads about this would take the pledge to confront their peers anytime they hear them use the word ‘gay’ to put somebody down!

This is wonderful! Dan is a very special person and he does deserve it. Good for him. Way to go Daniel!! And the comment above is true, all should stand with Dan and work for gay rights in all ways.

He supported the cause way before it became a “fad” among celebrities to support it. It’s something he believes in and lives by. Hat’s off to you, Dan!

Nice to know that people are getting rid of their prejudice against homosexual, I mean it’s completely rubbish! Dumbledore is gay and see how great he is!
