A close friend of Our Lady J told Britain’s The Sun newspaper: “Daniel is fascinated by the drag culture and is always asking questions.
He went to a few shows and was made to feel very welcome.“He’s a lovely guy and he and Our Lady J got on like a house on fire. They have become quite close.”Our Lady J – who makes a living performing songs by Dolly, Alanis Morissette and Nine Inch Nails – has boasted about his latest meeting with Daniel on his Twitter account.
Daniel Radcliffe made British tabloid headlines last year after being spotted around London with American trans singer-songwriter Our Lady J.
Instead of firing off a press release rebutting the speculation surrounding their friendly relationship, Radcliffe simply gushed about Our Lady J’s talent and their friendship, according to an interview in the new issue of OUT.
“And now I am in a position where I can help an amazing thing like the Trevor Project.” Radcliffe told the Associated Press he has always “hated anybody who is not tolerant of gay men or lesbians or bisexuals” and why it was “important” for him to make the PSA.
“It’s important for somebody from a big, commercial move series like ‘Harry Potter’ and particularly because I am not gay or bisexual or transgendered…The fact that I am straight makes not a difference, but it shows that straight people are incredibly interested and care a lot about this as well.” For the Out interview, Radcliffe and Our Lady J talked about the upcoming–and final–Harry Potter film, the thrills and potential hazards of dating when you’re one of the world’s most recognizable bachelors and why Radcliffe earns big points from the trans community.
But the community is amazing, and if you get involved with all those events, and you show how much you love and appreciate being there, you really get nothing but generosity and kindness back.” The young star also shares how he is preparing for Broadway (singing and dancing lessons!
), his admiration for Promises, Promises star Sean Hayes, his gay activism, political views and (drum roll) how his dating life is going.
“We have different words in England, so it makes perfect sense that there should be a different word for it in America,” Radcliffe recently told “When I see the images again from the first ‘Harry Potter’ I immediately think how bad my hair was,” Emma Watson said.
However, there are probably plenty of Potterheads that will argue that her bushy mane was rather adorable and true to the character in the book.
His performance as a troubled stable boy in the dark play earned him acclaim and two Audience Awards (for Favorite Leading Actor in a Broadway Play and Favorite Breakthrough Performance).
In the Out interview, Radcliffe gushes about how much the theater community means to him: “It’s very, very hard to actually describe why New York is so brilliant.
That dedication to working for the issue was not a one-time thing, as Radcliffe makes clear in a cover story in the new issue Out magazine.
