Cory Monteith, who plays Finn Hudson on the Fox musical-comedy Glee, will release a video for Avan Jogia's pro-gay campaign on Friday, July 1.
The 29-year-old actor's video for Jogia's Straight But Not Narrow campaign is being released tomorrow, the group said in a tweet to its more than 7,000 followers.
“So excited to release Cory Monteith's PSA tomorrow. It is also Canada day and the release of Monte Carlo. Big day for Cory,” the group messaged, referring to the actor's Canadian roots and cameo appearance in the romantic comedy Monte Carlo, which opens on Friday.
Monteith is the highest-profile celebrity yet to record a video for the group.
In the campaign's inaugural video, Jogia, who plays Ben Stark on cabler Syfy's Battlestar Galactica spinoff Caprica and Beck Oliver on the Nickelodeon teen sitcom Victorious, explained the group's mission.
“We are a group of men, talking to men about men who like men,” the 19-year-old Canadian actor said. “And how men should be OK with your man friends liking men.”
“It doesn't make you any less of a man or make it look like you're into men if you're friends with a man who likes men.”
“And men don't let other men disrespect men, man.”
“So, if you're a real man, man up and stand up for your man friends who like men,” Jogia added in the 43-second video ad. (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.)
