VIDEO: Josh Hutcherson can’t wait to have a gay son
Gay rights as important to him as family and acting, d'aww!
In the vicious, violent Hunger Games that is life, I don’t think anyone would mind having Peeta . . . I mean Josh Hutcherson on his team.
Hutcherson, as part of the Straight But Not Narrow campaign that promotes gay-positive education and outreach to young, straight men, recently received the GLAAD Vanguard Award, which he called the proudest achievement of his life.
He credited his drive to fight for gay rights to his two gay uncles who died of AIDS around the time he was born and to his mother teaching him to fight for what he believed in. The adorable (completely legal, so it’s not weird that I have a slight crush on him) 19-year-old Hutcherson said, “One day I want my son to come home from school and be like, ‘I found this guy and I love him!’ and I’ll be like ‘Yes, you did!” And that’s okay!”
