During the acceptance speech for the award of Top Rock Artist, singer Dan Reynolds made a powerful statement about the status of conversion therapy laws in the United States.
Reynolds said: "I just want to say that there are still 34 states that don't have laws banning LGBTQ+ conversion therapy... it's not working, it needs to change."
