Lead singer Nate Ruess, guitarist Jack Antonoff and keyboardist Andrew Dost blank are taking their advocacy up a notch by founding a non-profit marriage equality organization. Although all three members of the band are straight, they are firm supporters of the gay rights movement, and have been very vocal about it in the past.
Acting on their beliefs, the group have launched The Ally Coalition, an organization seeks to raise awareness and funds to aid with LGBQT rights. To launch the site, Jack Antonoff partnered with his sister, designer Rachel Antonoff.
TAC defines an ally as someone who "supports equal civil rights, gender equality, LGBTQ social movements, and actively challenges homophobia and transphobia." Their mission is to form a coalition of allies to aid and encourage artists and people in every walk of life and to end discrimination based on sexual preference.
Find out more about the coalition by going to the TAC website, or following them on their Twitter and Facebook.
