From Mormon Missionary To LGBTQ Advocate (And International Rock Star)

Michel Martin, All Things Considered

Dan Reynolds has taken spiritual questions to new more public terrain, the treatment of LGBTQ members of  the Mormon Church.

NPR's Michel Martin speaks with Dan Reynolds, lead singer of Imagine Dragons, about his new documentary, Believer, which takes a critical look at the Mormon Church's policies toward its LGBTQ members.

"The suicide rate in Utah being the number one reason of death among teenagers, and LGBT youth are eight times more likely to take their lives if they're not accepted in their home or community, it's kind of been bubbling up for a long time for me."
