At the 23rd Annual Media Awards for the Gay and Lesbian Alliance against Defamation in Los Angeles, Josh received the most iconic award ever.
Hutcherson may have played the role of a son to two lesbian mothers in the film, "The Kids are All Right," but it didn't take much of convincing for Josh to play the part genuinely. In real life, Josh was raised by a mother who had long been a supporter of gay and lesbian rights.
"My mom has always been a big advocate, especially in the gay, lesbian, transsexual and bisexual community so for me it's always been a part of my soul," shared Hutcherson in a recent interview with E! Online.
In the 23rd Annual Media Awards for GLAAD, Josh Hutcherson had taken home the Vanguard Award. At 19-years old, Josh is the youngest advocate to have won the said award. The prestigious award salutes accurate, inclusive and fair representation of gay, lesbian, transgender and bisexual community and issues that affect their lives in the media.
Another honoree who took home an award Saturday night was Chaz Bono. The 43-year old transgender activist took home the Stephen F. Kolzak Award and the outstanding documentary prize.
Special guests who made it to the esteemed event include Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Ellen DeGeneres, Kat Graham,
