Actor Josh Hutcherson, who played the son of a lesbian couple in last year’s hit film The Kids Are All Right, has recorded a message for the Straight, Not Narrow campaign designed to encourage young straight men to come out in support of their gay peers.
In the video Josh Hutcherson says it makes sense to support you gay friends — after all, it thins the competition down for the girls you like.
Watch the video below:
The Straight, Not Narrow campaign seeks to reduce homophobia by specifically educating young straight men about the issue.
There have been a number of great campaigns and charities that have recently emerged to show support to gay youth & teens. However, we noticed one significant niche missing in the efforts… the message to the young, straight male. It’s an unfortunate reality that most of the bullying and harassment that gay teens face comes from them. It is for this reason that we are building a campaign that is primarily directed to the young, straight male by using comedy and their peers to positively influence their views on LGBT teens.
So, whether you like girls, you like guys, you like both, you like neither (well, that would kinda suck, but you get the idea)…what difference does it really make? There’s a whole lot more to a person than who they date. And yeah, we’re all different. But we believe that it’s those differences that make us interesting. Why would we all want to be exactly the same? Where’s the excitement in that?
Just be you. Cause that’s good enough for us.
