Panic! At The Disco’s Brendon Urie Joins HRC’s Equality Rocks Campaign

Since 2005, Panic! At The Disco has released five studio albums since 2005 with Urie as the lead singer. The band is currently on tour promoting their fifth album “Death of a Bacehlor”, which is nominated for the 2017 Grammy Award for Best Rock Album, their second Grammy nomination since 2009.

Panic! At The Disco has been an active supporter of HRC in the past, collaborating on a t-shirt to go along with their single “Girls/Girls/Boys”. Urie has been very outspoken about promoting equality in the LGBTQ community, and has also been an advocate for normalizing the idea of sexual fluidity. “I feel like [sexual fluidity] should be celebrated. There’s no shame in it,” Urie told Advocate in 2014. “And if I can help shed some light on that fact, then great.”

The Equality Rocks campaign is sparking a conversation about love, fairness and equality around the globe. To join, visit www.hrc.org/EqualityRocks.
