|Imagine Dragons’ Dan Reynolds|
Last month, I wrote about Imagine Dragons frontman Dan Reynolds’ annual music festival LOVELOUD which aims to raise money for LGBTQ charities and organizations like The Trevor Project and the Tegan and Sara Foundation.
This year the event takes place on July 28 featuring, in addition to Imagine Dragons, artists like Zedd, Grace Vanderwaal, Vagabon, and others at Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City.
“I think the LOVELOUD stage is the most important stage I will ever stand on,” the 30-year-old recently told Queerty. “The festival has helped facilitate vital conversation about what it means to truly love and accept our LGBTQ youth.”
excited to announce that this yr, @LOVELOUDfest will be joining forces with @ATT to keep the dialogue going about how we can better serve our LGBTQ+ youth in our homes & communities. I hope 2 see u there and am wishing the entire LGBTQ+ community a #happypridemonth #attinfluencer pic.twitter.com/mDbaCWNSOM

AT&T has teamed up with Reynolds for the LOVELOUD festival as a sponsor.
A longtime LGBTQ ally, AT&T has generously donated $1 million this year to The Trevor Project, the nation’s leading organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to LGBTQ youth.
Suicide is the second leading cause of death for youth aged 10 – 24, and LGBTQ youth are almost five times as likely to have attempted suicide compared to their heterosexual peers.
In addition to the huge donation, the single largest in the 20-year history of The Trevor Project, AT&T will also donate more than $675,000 worth of AT&T products and services as well as technology & connectivity expertise.
