Brendon Urie of Panic! At The Disco Launches Highest Hopes Foundation

Ciao lovelies! Today I have a news story for you about how Brendon Urie of Panic! At The Disco has founded a human rights organization called Highest Hopes Foundation! I know it's not our normal posting schedule but it means a lot to me (Panic! At The Disco is a special interest of mine) so I wanted to share it with you all!


Brendon Urie has been quoted as saying that the Highest Hopes Foundation will support “communities subject to discrimination or abuse on the basis of gender, race, religion, sexual orientation and gender identity.”

The band’s newest album “Pray For The Wicked” was released recently and they have a tour planend for this summer as well as a second leg of the tour planned for winter/spring. Brendon Urie has announced that $1 of each ticket from U.S. dates of the Pray for the Wicked Tour will go to the Highest Hopes foundation.

Brendon Urie has always been a huge advocate for the LGBTQIA+ community, so it is heart-warming to see him take this step. He has even written a song (Girls/Girls/Boys) widely regarded to be a bisexual anthem.


In his official statement regarding the new foundation, Brendon had this to say:

                “I want to join in on the fight for those who cannot fight for themselves. Today I present to you the Highest Hopes Foundation, created to support the efforts of non-profit organizations that lead, develop, and advocate support for human rights. This is dedicated to all people + communities who are subject to discrimination or abuse on the basis of gender, race, religion, sexual orientation + gender identity.”

Reportedly, the Highest Hopes Foundation already has an alliance with GLSEN, to work towards making more LGBTQIA+ related clubs in schools to provide LGBTQIA+ youth with a safe place within their schools.

What do you think of this new foundation? Personally I think it’s wonderful that Brendon Urie is using his influence as a popular musical artist to influence the world in such a positive way. I was really moved by how he is using money from ticket sales to help as well.
