Josh Hutcherson is only 19 years old, but is way wise beyond his years. The actor has recently been seen in “The Hunger Games“, but is well known for playing the straight son to a gay couple in the fantastic film, “The Kids Are All Right.” He didn’t have to reach far to play that role as he’s been fighting straight ally for gays everywhere and grew up with it as his mom was raised by two men. Although prejudice and bullying is exhibited by both men and women, it’s primarily straight men that execute that wrath. Josh stands up against all of that as a straight man who is comfortable with himself and loves all people.
He received the GLAAD Vanguard award this week. The Vanguard Award is given to a person who has made a significant different in promoting equal rights for the LGBT community. The 19-year-old actor is the youngest ever recipient of the honor. Previous honors include Drew Barrymore.
