Singer-actor Nick Jonas says more straight artists should speak out in favor of gay marriage.

In promoting the single Jealous from his self-titled solo album, Jonas made several appearances at gay clubs in New York. He also plays Nate Kulina, a gay Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter, on DirecTV's Kingdom.

In an interview with French gay glossy Tetu, Jonas, 22, discusses his role as an LGBT ally.

"Everyone should have the right to love and marry whomever he wants," Jonas said, according to a translation by"And the more there are straight artists who defend those ideas, the more they will be admitted."

Last year, Jonas told gay glossy The Advocate that he's comfortable courting gay fans.

"I don't know why more heterosexual male artists don't embrace their gay fan base, because it's so important. At least, I feel like it's such an important part of my fan base, so I wanted to make an effort and it was incredible to be around my gay fans and celebrate," he said.
