The LOVELOUD Foundation was founded in 2017 by Dan Reynolds, the lead singer of Imagine Dragons, to help ignite the relevant and vital conversation of what it means to unconditionally love, understand, accept and support LGBTQ+ youth in an effort to keep families together.
LOVELOUD is the catalyst for bringing communities together to ignite a conversation that celebrates individuality. It all begins with talking about, sharing and showing the realities of what LGBTQ+ teens face daily. Dan Reynolds said,
“I want LOVELOUD to engage a passionate and supportive audience in the fight against teen suicide and to bring communities together to start a conversation that focuses on recognizing individuality.”
LOVELOUD offers hope to young people, letting them know they’re not alone and encouraging acceptance in the home and community.
This organization is committed to creating a community of inclusion. The goal is to create support and resources for those in crisis. LOVELOUDhopes to provide insight into recognizing and helping those in crisis, supplying resources to those wanting to learn more, and imparting guidance on how to more effectively start a conversation with family and friends.
