Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has become the new face of The Trevor Project. He filmed a public service announcement for the organization, which focuses on suicide prevention efforts among gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered teens on Feb 26.
Established in 1998 to coincide with the HBO airing of the award winning short film, Trevor, hosted by Ellen DeGeneres, The Trevor Helpline is the only nationwide, around-the-clock crisis and suicide prevention helpline for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth in United States. Their trained counselors listen and understand without judgment.
The Trevor Project was presented with the Crisis Center Excellence Award from the American Association of Suicidology (AAS) at the 43rd Annual AAS Conference in Orlando on 22 April.
