Josh Hutcherson is winning everything these days! Go, Peeta!
GLAAD has announced that Hutcherson will receive the Vanguard Award, which is presented to media professionals who, through their work, have increased the visibility and understanding of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.
GLAAD President Herndon Graddick said:
"Emerging as a leader in a new generation of equality advocates, Josh Hutcherson has consistently used his platform to help young people understand that no one should face discrimination simply because of who they are. Josh's commitment to achieving equality for every American is a message he carries in his work both on screen and off, earning him the honor of being GLAAD's youngest-ever Vanguard Award recipient."
What an honor for Mr. Hutcherson! He totally deserves it and even though Hutcherson is straight (unfortunately lol) he’s done a lot of good for the gay community. Plus, he was in The Kids Are Alright, one of our faves!
Don’t be sad, get GLAAD!
