Launched in partnership with his own charity Straight But Not Narrow, The Trevor Project, and human I-T, Hutcherson’s new “Power On” campaign aims to provide LGBT teens with refurbished laptops, smartphones, and tablets in order to bring them better access to important resources (and maybe his nudes as well).
The 21-year-old actor announced the partnership to Out this week, indicating that from now through October 16 — Spirit Day — the Power On campaign will be accepting mail-in electronic donations in any condition. He kicked the campaign off by donating one of his own computers.
He tells Out:
“It’s awesome to know that it’ll be used to help a young person out there who, before this campaign, wasn’t able to get access to information and resources that could really help them. I’ve always respected the work that The Trevor Project does, and to have an opportunity for Straight But Not Narrow to collaborate with them on a campaign like Power On is exciting.”
As one of the more open and casual allies in Hollywood, Hutcherson earned his status by embracing his gay fans at every turn. In 2013, he revealed that he was straight but could “see himself dating a guy in the future” and wouldn’t mind having sex with Liam Hemsworth.
Last Friday, he wore a “Straight But Not Narrow” t-shirt to the 3rd Annual Celebrity Basketball Game in Los Angeles.
