Brendon Urie pledges $1 million in support of LGBT+ youth
Brendon Urie has pledged $1 million to GLSEN (the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network) – America’s largest LGBTQ advocacy group. GLSEN’s mission is focused on creating a safe and inclusive environment for students in schools across America.
Brendon will be assisting in establishing GSA (Gender & Sexuality/Gay-Straight Alliance) clubs for students in high school. Brendon states, “For years my fans have inspired me with their determination and creativity as they have created a safe and inclusive community. I felt the time had come for me to join them boldly, to bring that energy and power to bear on the huge challenges facing our whole society.”
Only days ago Brendon announced that he was launching his own human rights organisation, The Highest Hopes Foundation; a non-for-profit organisation that aims to support “communities subject to discrimination or abuse on the basis of gender, race, religion, sexual orientation and gender identity.”
Today I present to you the Highest Hopes Foundation, created to support the efforts of non-profit organizations that lead, develop, and advocate support for human rights https://t.co/tiltsqeotO
