8 Young, Straight Male Celebrities Who Are Allies of the LGBTQ+ Community
Celebrity support for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer rights is basically assumed by this point. In fact, if any star says or does something at all homophobic or transphobic, they go immediately onto our BOYCOTT list (sorry not sorry, Grier brothers). However vocal a famous guy or gal can be about supporting LGBTQ+ rights (and simply speaking about these issues IS half the battle), it’s also V important for them to put their money where their mouth is. Ya feel?
Right now, the protections of our queer brothers and sisters are under attack and we need the help of our famous allies more than ever. We can all be a part of making a positive change, but celebrities’ support in the pro-LGBT cause could make all the difference. Check out the eight young male celebs (who all are, as far as we know, straight) who have publicly donated to, supported or participated in LGBT projects, campaigns and organizations.
Josh is a huge advocate for LGBT rights, participating in organizations like Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) and The Trevor Project; he even started an org called Straight But Not Narrow! The program actually works as a kind of "training program," teaching young adults to be better allies to their queer peers. Iconic!
