Eddie Redmayne Visited Homeless Queer Kids, Fed Them, Urges You To Help, Too
by Jeremy KinserFebruary 29, 2016
Eddie Redmayne didn’t win his second Oscar this year, but he recently learned an unforgettable lesson that he wants to share with viewers. The photogenic actor who won acclaim for his portrayal of trans pioneer Lili Elbe in The Danish Girl toured L.A.’s LGBT Center’s Youth Center in Hollywood and met with 70 queer homeless teens for a large buffet breakfast, courtesy of the film’s distributor Focus Features.
According to the Center’s press release:
The youth had lots of questions for Redmayne, and he had lots of questions for Center CEO Lorri L. Jean as he learned about the Center’s services to help and empower youth to build successful, independent lives for themselves. He was particularly shocked to learn that about 40% of the youth experiencing homelessness in L.A. are LGBT or questioning. He was also so impressed by the Center’s services—particularly the success of the GED and employment programs—that he offered to record a short video message to promote support for the Center.
