After announcing plans to launch a non-profit human rights organization, Brendon Urie has also pledged $1 million to support America’s LGBT youth.
The Panic! At The Disco frontman has announced his partnership with GLSEN (the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network) to create student-led LGBTQ clubs (GSAs) at high schools across North America.
To kick-start the partnership, Urie pledged $1 million dollars to GLSEN for the initiative. In a statement made by the frontman, he shared:
“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.”

Urie also announced his plans on creating a non-profit human rights organization called the Highest Hopes Foundation.
The organization was created in order to support those who are “subject to discrimination or abuse on the basis of gender, race, religion, sexual orientation + gender identity.”
Panic! At The Disco’s sixth studio album, Pray For The Wicked, is out now, via Fueled by Ramen/DCD2.
The band recently announced the second leg of their Pray For The Wicked Tour, which will see us praying for the wicked across North America well into 2019 with support from Two Feet.
