Support for LGBTQ Youth in Utah

A CDC report from 2015 shows the teen suicide rate in Utah was twice the national average.  Mormon musician Dan Reynolds of the band, Imagine Dragons, hopes to change that. He remembered his mother telling him to stand up for the underprivileged, the stigmatized, and the at risk. He started the LoveLoud Foundation in 2017.

The Goodnewspaper reports that last year the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints applauded  the LoveLoud Foundation and festival and that this year, Utah named July 28, 2018 “Love Loud Day.”

  1. JoAnna, thanks for the post. I also got tear eyed when I saw this young man dancing and later fall

  2. Wonderful scenes of the present opening

  3. All are great stories that show the goodness of human kind. I have my favorite feel good ones. Rescuing the elderly was really about the Marines doing what they have been trained to do. They don’t just prepare for battle. Although saving all those seniors was an act of bravery. I like the story about the guy with the bus, who used his own money to get a bus and then drive all those miles to get the big dogs and some cats. And .the policeman that used his or her own money to help the young man complete his Michael Jackson look. That was vey moving.
