The Sun quoted Radcliffe as saying: "I am very pleased to begin my support of The Trevor Project, which saves lives every day through its critical work.

"It's extremely distressing to consider that in 2009 suicide is a top three killer of young people, and it's truly devastating to learn that LGBTQ youth are up to four times more likely to attempt suicide than their heterosexual peers.

"I deeply hope my support can raise the organisation's visibility so even more despondent youth become aware of the Trevor helpline's highly trained counsellors and Trevor's many other resources.

"It's vitally important that young people understand they are not alone and, perhaps even more important, that their young lives have real value."

Radcliffe who had earlier confessed to being brought up around gays, recently featured on the cover of the gay magazine, Attitude.

He also said rumours about his sexuality were 'awesome.'
