Nineteen-year-old actor Matt Bennett, co-star of the Nickelodeon teen sitcom Victorious, is standing up for his gay male friends.

Bennett has recorded a video for fellow Victorious co-star Avan Jogia's Straight But Not Narrow campaign.

“Hey guys, I'm here today to give you a message from Straight But Not Narrow,” Bennett says in his one-minute-forty-one-second video, the campaign's longest to date. “Now, let me tell you, I have a lot of gay friends and I don't see anything wrong with that.”

“I think that everybody deserves a fair shot and an equal life. So don't discriminate against people. Just not cool.”

“I'm also a big fan of some artists who are openly gay: Keith Haring, Michael Stipe, John Cameron Mitchell, and whoever wrote Burlesque.”

“So, whether you like guys or girls or both or neither, it doesn't matter. It's your life. Live it the way you want to,” Bennett adds. (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.)

Jogia, 19, who plays Ben Stark on cabler Syfy's Battlestar Galactica spinoff Caprica and Beck Oliver on the Nickelodeon teen sitcom Victorious, launched his Straight But Not Narrow campaign earlier this month with a video featuring himself. Josh Hutcherson of the lesbian moms movie The Kids Are All Right has also recorded a video for the campaign.
