Actor Daniel Radcliffe on Monday was honored by The Trevor Project with the Trevor Hero Award, recognizing him as an inspiration to LGBT youth, and for his efforts to increase visibility and understanding of the LGBTQ community.

Radcliffe said his work with the Trevor Project is “one of the most important, if not the most important, thing that I’m associated with.”

“The fact that I’m able to help with something like this makes me very, very proud,” Radcliffe told MTV News at the event. “It’s a huge honor, and it’s lovely of them to give it to me. I’ll say it again later, but the real heroes are the people who are staffing those call centers and picking up the phones saving lives every single day.”

In August 2009, the Trevor Project announced that Radcliffe had made “a major donation” to the organization, and joined its Circle of Hope, a community of major donors which plays an essential role in providing the financial leadership that makes the organization’s lifesaving work possible.

The Trevor Project is the leading organization focusing on suicide prevention efforts among LGBT youth.
