In a recent Instagram post, the frontman for Imagine Dragons, Dan Reynolds, opened up about his health battles with the autoimmune disease, ankylosing spondylitis.
“Just a few months of reworking my entire lifestyle/diet/exercise w/ @thor345622 and I have zero inflammation now. These before and after pictures say it all. Sorry for the corny exercise post but truly changed my life and healed years of pain. Unbelievably grateful for health.“
He has has also helped queer Mormons find self-acceptance (Reynolds identifies as straight but he’s a queer ally and a major babe!)
Last year, along with former Morman rocker Tyler Glenn he performed at the annual music festival in Salt Lake City, LoveLoud. This year it takes place on July 28 and aims to raise a million dollars for organizations like The Trevor Project and the Tegan and Sara Foundation as well as Utah-based LGBTQ charities.
As the first LoveLoud festival was coming together, Reynolds began looking at LDS Church’s policies toward LGBTQ Mormons which became the subject of HBO’s documentary, Believer.
The guy is doing great work and it shows inside as well as out.
