Hunger Games actor Josh Hutcherson is being recognized at the upcoming GLAAD Awards for his role in promoting a better understanding of the gay, lesbian, transgender, and bisexual community. Josh will be presented with an award at the ceremony, which takes place on April 21st.
The GLAAD president released a statement in regards to Josh’s award. Here’s what he had to say:
“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.”
Congratulations to Josh! He can also celebrate the fact that the Hunger Games came in at number 1 in the box office for the 4th week in a row! WOW!
