AT&T Stands in Support of LGBTQ Community on National Coming Out Day
AT&T Celebrates with 3 Concerts in New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles, the LOVELOUD Premiere on DIRECTV and DIRECTV NOW and a Volunteer Drive for The Trevor Project
As a longtime supporter of the LGBTQ community, AT&T* honors National Coming Out Day this Thursday by celebrating love and acceptance with concerts in select cities. We invite everyone to experience the first broadcast of the LOVELOUD Festival on DIRECTV and DIRECTV NOW. AT&T is also powering a volunteer drive with The Trevor Project.
“We stand in support of the LGBTQ community members every day, but National Coming Out Day is cause for celebration,” said Corey Anthony, Chief Diversity Officer, AT&T. “As an ally, our support is long-standing and unwavering. This week we’re proud to support The Trevor Project’s “How to Save a Life” volunteer drive as well as celebrate with some great music performances.”
Everyone is welcome to join in celebrating National Coming Out Day by visiting a participating AT&T store for a chance to access concerts taking place on the evening of Oct. 11 in New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles with special guests Billie Ellish, Jussie Smollett, Betty Who, Muna, Wrabel and Parson James.
For the fans who can’t make it to New York, Chicago, or Los Angeles, you can still join in the musical celebration. The premiere of LOVELOUD on AT&T AUDIENCE Network is on Thursday, Oct. 11 at 8 p.m. ET. Filmed at Rice Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City this summer, LOVELOUD features performances by Imagine Dragons, Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda, Grace VanderWaal, Neon Trees’ Tyler Glenn, Vagabon and A.W.
On National Coming Out Day and every day, we champion equality through our relationship with The Trevor Project. As the world’s largest suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for LGBTQ young people, The Trevor Project works to save young lives by providing support through its free and confidential crisis services.
We’re also proud to support The Trevor Project’s “How to Save a Life,” a new national campaign that encourages supporters to apply to become volunteer crisis counselors for TrevorText and TrevorChat, the organization’s free and confidential text and web chat support services for LGBTQ youth. The campaign’s 30-second PSA features actor and singer Jussie Smollett.
