tours

The Ally Coalition has rallied over 30,000 fans to take action for LGBTQ equality. Through our innovative touring model, TAC brings together high profile music tours with non-profit organizations dedicated to bettering the lives of LGBTQ youth. With TAC’s unique connection to the entertainment industry, our artists use their platform to raise awareness of the systemic inequalities facing the LGBTQ population and activates prominent members of the creative community and their fan bases to engage with these issues in meaningful and impactful ways.

Gone Now Fall Tour

In support of Gone Now, we hit the road with Bleachers to push the conversation about Trans Rights, specifically essential protections and services that support for Trans youth.
