LDS Church Issues Statement on Utah LGBT Festival

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

After receiving media inquiries, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has provided the following statement about the LoveLoud Festival in Orem, Utah, which takes place August 26, 2017:

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.

According to their official website, the LoveLoud Festival “is a concert promoting ‘what it means to unconditionally love, understand, accept and support LGBTQ+ youth in an effort to keep families together’ and to prevent teen suicide. Imagine Dragon will be headlining the show with other acts such as Neon Trees, Krewella, Nicholas Petricca from Walk the Moon, Joshua James and AJA Volkman rounding out the performances. Proceeds will go to the LOVELOUD Foundation which supports The Trevor Project, Encircle, GLAAD and STAND4KIND.”
