Actor Corey Monteith has recorded a video for the pro-LGBT Straight Not Narrow campaign.
In the video Monteith, who plays high school jock Finn Hudson in Fox’s hit show Glee, says:
“So maybe you like to play football. Maybe you like to sing and dance. Maybe you like to do both. Maybe you don’t like either. It doesn’t matter. Just be yourself. Just be you. Because that’s good enough for me.”
Monteith goes on to explain what the Straight Not Narrow campaign is all about: guys talking about guys who like other guys.
Watch the video below:
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.
