Meet one of the artists, disruptors, educators, groundbreakers, innovators, and storytellers who all helped make the world a better place for LGBTQ+ people.

Jason Mraz is a singer-songwriter who skyrocketed to fame with his 2002 debut album, Waiting for My Rocket to Come, featuring the hit single “The Remedy (I Won’t Worry).” He struck mainstream gold again with the 2008 track “I’m Yours,” which likewise became a global sensation.

In 2018 Mraz came out as bisexual. In a “love letter” to the LGBTQ+ community on Billboard, he proclaimed that he was “bi your side.” And in a recent interview with The Advocate, Out’s sister publication, Mraz declared that he is long done “broadcasting as hetero” in his music. His eighth studio album, Mystical Magical Rhythmical Radical Ride, influenced by dance music, dropped this year and was hailed as his big comeback. The two-time Grammy winner is also a competitor on season 32 of Dancing With the Stars, bringing bi representation to America’s most-watched dance floor.

Beyond his music, Mraz is known for his philanthropic work, advocating for environmental conservation and education through the Jason Mraz Foundation, established in 2011, which also supports homeless LGBTQ+ youth through donations to True Colors United. In all his endeavors, he uses his platform to promote inclusivity, love, and acceptance.

“I grew up on a street where only one kind of relationship was projected. But as I grew up and grew out, I learned that anything is possible in human connection,” he says. “The work I do with my foundation focuses on inclusivity, providing young people opportunities to shine, onstage and off. I think it’s important we see and celebrate every version of love — in our lives, and also in our stories, films, music, and art.” @jason_mraz
