Harry Potter star Daniel
Radcliffe says he supports the legalization of gay marriage.
The barely legal 21-year-old actor
first began speaking out for gay rights by recording a PSA for the
LGBT teen suicide hotline The Trevor Project, which earned him a Hero
Award from the group.
Now the Deathly Hallows star has
endorsed allowing gay and lesbian couples the right to marry.
an interview with gay social network dot429.com, Radcliffe talked
about the institution and praised former San Francisco Governor Gavin
Newsom for his early support.
“I'm more than happy to say I think
gay marriage should be legal,” Radcliffe said. “There's
absolutely no reason why it shouldn't be.”
“It's fantastic how he [Newsom] has
spoke out about these issues over the years. He spoke out for his
city. He's not worried what the rest of the country is doing,”
this month in an interview with MTV News, Radcliffe praised Lady
Gaga for her gay rights advocacy, adding that the
Born This Way singer “has a slightly more flamboyant way
of putting her point across than I would.”
