Daniel Radcliffe: 'Gay People Should Have Equality Everywhere'

Daniel Radcliffe: 'Gay People Should Have Equality Everywhere'

Daniel Radcliffe strikes a pose on the cover of Attitude UK magazine’s March 2012 issue.

Here’s what the 22-year-old English actor had to share:

On teen suicides: “It’s not surprising when you consider how accessible a bullying victim is now. You used to be able to escape at the end of a day: now you can be hunted by mobile phone, Facebook, Twitter. It’s terrifying.”

On sexuality: “Don’t define as straight or gay, define yourself as people and help another person if they’re in trouble.”

On marriage equality: “The ultimate reason gay marriage should be legalized everywhere is because, as a kid, you look to your mum and dad and they’re married; then you look at the gay couple who’ve been together for the same amount of time, but because they can’t get married their relationship doesn’t seem the same. Yes, gay marriage is about symbolically blessing a relationship, but the larger issue is about transmitting a fundamental message about equality. Gay people should have equality in law everywhere.”
