Josh Hutcherson has joined Avan Jogia in the Straight But Not Narrow campaign, aimed at heterosexual guys.
The social awareness group challenges conventional thinking and works to combat bullying by simply asking: Why does it matter?
From the Facebook page:
Talking to dudes.
Who like dudes.
To get all the young, straight people out there to say…. “Oh, you’re gay? That’s cool. Whatever.”

The We Day Concert, organized by Free the Children, is an annual event to bring global change through the youth of the world. The Toronto based organization provides information and help raises funds for impoverished kids around the world. Things we take for granted: clean drinking water, medical care, vaccinations, and education opportunities.
This year’s concert had surprise guests in The Jonas Brothers who performed on stage in front of the 16,000 fans. Justin Bieber performed his hit ‘One Time’ and the crowd sang along with the pop sensation. Check out his live performance below.

Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe has stepped up to the plate to support The Trevor Project. The nationwide non-profit organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) youth provides counseling and a round-the-clock suicide prevention hotline for teens in crisis. By donating time and money, Radcliffe has become an essential part of the group’s program of support and help for teens and young people who are having trouble dealing with sexual orientation issues.
“I am very pleased to begin my support of The Trevor Project, which saves lives every day through its critical work,” said Daniel Radcliffe. “It’s extremely distressing to consider that in 2009 suicide is a top three killer of young people, and it’s truly devastating to learn that LGBTQ youth are up to four times more likely to attempt suicide than their heterosexual peers. I deeply hope my support can raise the organization’s visibility so even more despondent youth become aware of The Trevor Helpline’s highly trained counselors and Trevor’s many other resources. It’s vitally important that young people understand they are not alone and, perhaps even more important, that their young lives have real value.”
The actor is committed to ‘setting a meaningful example’ and hopes to do more in the future with the organization. This is a bold step for a young actor – to come out and put his money to a cause that is polarizing for so many people and truly embrace diversity. Bravo Daniel!

After a very successful trip at the end of May of this year, England’s Prince Harry may visit the United States more often to continue to garner support for his charity Sentebale. While in New York City last month the charming Prince, who is third in line to the British throne, was able to raise quite a bit of money for his organization in Lesotho, Africa to help ease the suffering of children who are affected by the AIDS epidemic.
“Harry’s polo match was a big success and raised a substantial six-figure sum,” says one of Harry’s chums. “He is keen for the American Friends of Sentebale to build on that success.”
We’d love to see more of the very attractive Prince here in the U.S. His mother, the late Princess Diana, was very fond of the time she spent here and while Prince Harry won’t be moving here, a few more jaunts to the States would be welcome.
