A Broadway Hero: Trevor Project Honors H2S Star Daniel Radcliffe
Arguably one of the most recognizable people on the entire plant, Radcliffe has said that he grew up knowing many homosexual people through his parents, and that it never occurred to him that there was any reason to think of them as different, let alone be against them or want to hurt them. One might think that someone of his financial stature and celebrity would try to distance himself from even the whiff of controversy. Not Daniel Radcliffe, who has taken the lead amongst his generation in the fight for equality for people of a sexual minority. Other Broadway stars similarly honored in the past include Nathan Lane and Vanessa Williams. But Radcliffe is the first honored at the same age as the Project's target "audience."
The star of the soon-to-open How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying, has really made a name for himself in the Broadway community, much like frequent visitor and fellow international superstar Hugh Jackman. In 2008, then starring in Equus, Daniel generated quite a bit of money for Broadway Cares when he'd strip off his jeans, autograph them and auction them off on the spot.
With a guy like this on their side, the work of the Trevor Project, and indeed the world, gets one step closer to a society of full acceptance for everyone. Radcliffe will receive this honor on June 11, 2011.
