“There is still so much to do,” Hunger Games star Josh Hutcherson tells E Online in a discussion about his organization Straight But Not Narrow, which he helped co-found to help bolster support between LGBTQ youth and LGBTQ allies.

“It’s not only even about legislation. It starts there by making it legally acceptable, but socially there is so much prejudice and bias that is integrated into our culture, and that’s going to be around for while. I hope one day in my lifetime we get to close the door on this group, but there’s a lot more work to do.”

On August 23 in Long Beach, California, Hutcherson will host a celebrity volleyball match, which will benefit SBNN during the ASICS World Series of Beach Volleyball.
