Give'em Hell, Harry
The Associated Press is reporting that Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has filmed a public service announcement to combat homophobia. The PSA was filmed by The Trevor Project, an organization that focuses on suicide prevention for LGBT youth. Said Radcliffe, "I grew up knowing a lot of gay men and it was never something that I even thought twice about — that some men were gay and some weren’t. And then I went to school and (for) the first time . . . I came across homophobia. . . . I had never encountered it before. It shocked me...Now I am in the very fortunate position where I can actually help or do something about it."
Radcliffe also made a substantial financial donation to the organization. The announcement is scheduled to air sometime this spring.
