You may know Dan Reynolds best for commanding the stage as the lead singer of “Imagine Dragons,” but he is also a passionate advocate for the LGBTQ+ community. In 2017, Dan founded the LOVELOUD Foundation to help ignite and progress 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.
To celebrate individuality and convene communities in support of LGBTQ+ youth, LOVELOUD hosts the annual LOVELOUD Festival Powered by AT&T, featuring a showstopping lineup of musical guests and inspiring speakers. For the second year in a row, Xbox is honored to partner with LOVELOUD and contribute to its goal of raising $1 million to benefit LGBTQ+ charities. To do this, we’ll be putting Dan’s gaming skills to the test with the LOVELOUD Xbox Game Pass Challenge.
Tune in on Saturday, June 29 at 3:20 p.m. MT to the AT&T livestream of LOVELOUD Festival to see Dan compete in the LOVELOUD Xbox Game Pass Challenge. Hosted by Benny Perkin, presenter of Xbox On, Dan will aim to win challenges that combine gaming, music and teamwork. Games include Hollow Knight: Voidheart Edition and Descenders, both of which are available with Xbox Game Pass for Console and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.
When all challenges are completed, Dan will rack up $100,000 for the LOVELOUD Foundation, which will benefit LGBTQ+ charity organizations including Encircle, The Trevor Project, Tegan and Sara Foundation, GLAAD, The Human Rights Campaign and many more.
At Xbox, we believe that gaming should be safe, inclusive and accessible for all, and we strive to be strong allies and members of the LGBTQ+ community. The LOVELOUD Xbox Game Pass Challenge is an opportunity to help the LOVELOUD Foundation reach its fundraising goal and to do our part to spread the message of love and acceptance even wider.
The third annual LOVELOUD Festival Powered by AT&T will take place at USANA Amphitheater in West Valley City, UT on Saturday, June 29th, 2019. The event will feature a headlining performance by Grammy Award-nominated, multi-platinum selling pop star, and advocate for equality Kesha, as well as a star-studded lineup of other artists that includes Dan Reynolds, AJR, Tegan & Sara, Daya, K. Flay, PVRIS, and Laura Jane Grace.
Famed internet and television sensation Kalen Allen will host the day’s festivities, and additional speakers and performers set to appear at the festival include Emma González, Tyler Glenn, VINCINT and more.
