Nick Jonas loves standing up for the rights of the LGBTQ+ community, doesn't he? Not only did he and Demi Lovato cancel their North Carolina dates Honda Civic Tour: Future Now dates due to their anti-LGBT HB2 law, but he plays gay characters in Scream Queens *and* Kingdom.

Chatting to the mag, Nick said: "It's not the majority, but a large handful have a negative opinion for whatever reason. And I think it's really quite sad."

.

He added that he loves playing Nate in Kingdom and even looked to his gay mates when preparing for the role, saying: "It's been a great character to play. One that I try to be respectful of and take myself out of. He's on his own path.

"It was a good way to research, to kind of build the character with some elements of real life."

What d'ya make of that, then? Give us a tweet over @sugarscape after the vid below. Ta love.
