The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is applauding a concert promoting what it means to “unconditionally love, understand, accept and support LGBTQ+ youth”.

In a statement released Wednesday the Church said the following about the LoveLoud Festival:

We applaud the LoveLoud Festival for LGBT youth’s aim to bring people together to address teen safety and to express respect and love for all of God’s children. We join our voice with all who come together to foster a community of inclusion in which no one is mistreated because of who they are or what they believe.

We share common beliefs, among them the pricelessness of our youth and the value of families. We earnestly hope this festival and other related efforts can build respectful communication, better understanding and civility as we all learn from each other.

The festival is 5:30 p.m. on August 26th at the Brent Brown Ballpark in Orem.

Imagine Dragons, Neon Trees, Krewella and others will bet there. All proceeds go to the LOVELOUD Foundation which supports The Trevor Project, Encircle, GLAAD and STAND4KIND.
