Big news for Josh Hutcherson!

The LA Times is reporting that the 19-year-old Hunger Games star will receive the prestigious Van Guard award at Saturday's GLAAD Media Awards. Given to members in the entertainment industry who help increase the visibility and understanding of LGBT (lesbian, gay, bi, and transgendered) individuals, being involved with anti-bullying groups is nothing new for Josh. Since early last year Josh has been involved with Straight But Not Narrow, an anti-bullying campaign which focuses on gay youth. Started by Victorious star Avan Jogia, many other stars have lent their support in PSAs speaking out against bullying, and encouraging youth to just be who they are.

In an exclusive statement, the folks behind SBNN reacted to this huge honor being bestowed upon Josh, saying:

"We are so proud of Josh. He is truly inspiring the next generation of LGBTQ equality advocates and allies. Straight But Not Narrow is beyond thankful to have leaders like Josh, Avan Jogia, and Cory Monteith on board lending their voice to our cause."
Josh is also the youngest person to ever receive this award. Congrats!

    You really make it seem really easy along with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something which I feel I'd by no means understand. It kind of feels too complicated and extremely wide for me. I am looking ahead on your next post, I'll try to get the cling of it!
