Josh Hutcherson launches campaign to connect rural and low-income LGBT youth online »
Actor and ally Josh Hutcherson is kicking off a new campaign to connect LGBT youth to supportive online communities.
The new project, Power On, will encourage teenagers to donate their old laptops, tablets and smartphones to be refurbished and given to LGBT resource centers nationwide. The goal is that youth in rural and low-income areas will have access to online resources, which studies show are crucial for LGBT youth in finding life-saving information from health resources to supportive friends.
Recognizing that the internet can be a powerful tool for those questioning their sexuality or who cannot find other LGBTQ peers in person, The Trevor Project in 2008 set up a social network, TrevorSpace.org, specifically designed for queer youth and straight allies. Currently serving approximately 100,000 people, the site is set to be included by default with other, similar resources on all devices distributed through Power On.
When launching the project, Josh Hutcherson led by example by donating one of his own computers. “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,” he said. “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.”
My overpowering crush on Josh Hutcherson knows no bounds. Also, this is one of the smartest, most awesome campaigns I’ve heard of in a very long time. Find out how to get involved here!

“I am incredibly passionate about my life, I am absolutely unable to hide any emotion. If I wrote a book, I’d have to call it ‘P is for Passion’. I don’t go in for anything halfway. My feelings about things are instant, on the spot. And my heart is always, always on my sleeve.” - Kate Winslet
