AT&T Stands in Support of LGBTQ Community on National Coming Out Day

As a longtime supporter of the LGBTQ community, AT&T honored National Coming Out Day on October the 10th by celebrating love and acceptance with concerts in select cities.

“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.”

For the fans who couldn’t make it to New York, Chicago, or Los Angeles, they could still join in the musical celebration. The premiere of LOVELOUD on AT&T AUDIENCE Network was on Thursday, Oct. 11 at 8 p.m. ET. Filmed at Rice Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City this summer, LOVELOUD featured performances by Imagine Dragons, Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda, Grace VanderWaal, Neon Trees’ Tyler Glenn, Vagabon and A.W.

AT&T said:

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.
