On August 26 in Provo, UT, LoveLoud Festival will bring together communities of all types- LGBTQ, several churches, and everyone inbetween. It's thanks to Imagine Dragons and their frontman Dan Reynolds.
He told me the main goal for this festival is to bring everyone together in a safe environment so we can all help LGBTQ youth and their families understand how to be one loving unit.
As someone who also tries to be an ally as much as possible, I was so excited to talk to him, find out his motivation behind this, how his thinking has changed since his strong Mormon upbringing, and his "super dark" time that he has thankfully made it out of.
It's a different conversation than I'm used to having with an artist, but I'm so glad to bring this cause/event/man's beliefs to people who may not have been aware.
