Dan Reynolds Says His LGBTQ Activism Invites Backlash On All Sides, But 'Everybody Has to Do Their Part'
Dan Reynolds is not afraid of alienating some in his audience. The Imagine Dragons frontman has been a fierce and outspoken ally for the LGBTQ community for the last few years, and has seen his fair share of criticism for being so vocal.
Reynolds opened up about that criticism in a recent interview with Vulture. The artist said that many of his critics were conservative parents who didn’t agree with his message of equality. “Going into this, I knew there would be people on the far right who were going to be upset,” he said of his activism. “People tell me they won’t allow their kids to go to my concerts anymore; that when I get to heaven, God’s going to be upset with me because I made so many kids gay.”

The retired peanut farmer, 93, has been less vocal than other former commanders in chief about the goings-on in the White House, but in a recent interview with The Washington Post, Carter seared Trump’s policies and character.
“I think he’s a disaster … In human rights and in treating people equal,” the 39th president said before his wife, former First Lady Rosalynn Carter, 91, jumped in. “The worst is that he is not telling the truth, and that just hurts everything,” she added.
