Gay Ally Josh Hutcherson

Josh Hutcherson graces the cover of OUT Magazine’s November issue. Hutcherson’s breakout role was as Annette Bening & Julianne Moore’s son in The Kids Are All Right. He now stars in the wildly successful Hunger Games franchise whose second installment Catching Fire is due out this month. Josh chats talks about his sexuality & the mission of the youth organization he founded Straight But Not Narrow. Hutcherson stated, “Maybe I could say right now I’m 100% straight. But who knows? In a f--king year, I could meet a guy & be like, Whoa, I’m attracted to this person. I’ve met guys all the time that I’m like, Damn, that’s a good-looking guy, you know? I’ve never been, like, Oh, I want to kiss that guy. I really love women. But I think defining yourself as 100% anything is kind of near-sighted & close-minded”. Talking about his commitment to prevent youth bullying through his organization, Straight But Not Narrow he added, “Talking to kids in school & reaching out through social media we found to be really effective. That’s where they bullying happens the most, where people are molded into who they become when they grow up. Kids are so mean to each other sometimes. You’re figuring out who you are & you’re insecure about it. Especially if you don’t have a great family life or you’re being influenced by a religion too much, a way to feel better sometimes is to put somebody else down. Our goal is making kids more compassionate & more understanding that people are just people. It’s really about being yourself.” Read More…
