100 Days of Jules, Day 94: "The heart-to-heart thing — that changed my world."


Here is where I attempt to blog about Julianne Hough for 100 days straight. This was inspired by Allie Jones’ 500 blogs on Kristin Cavallari, a much funnier read.

While speaking at the LOVELOUD concert or conference for LGBTQ youth (I’m not sure) in Utah, Julianne Hough explained that in the past she has been hesitant to speak on issues because the idea of being politically correct scared her.

But that seemed to go away in September 2017 when she told the LOVELOUD audience that protecting and supporting LGBTQ youth was important to her. She says even though she wouldn’t trade growing up in Utah for anything, she feels lucky to spend a lot of her youth in London because it was there she met people with different backgrounds and beliefs than her. (It’s also important to note that she was born in Utah and then left for London at age 10. After she left London, she moved to Las Vegas, so she didn’t spend a ton of time in Utah.)

During her speech, Julianne asks the audience to feel their heartbeat. Then she asks them to hug their neighbor “heart-to-heart.”

“It feels good, right?” she yells into the microphone. “I’m telling you, the heart-to-heart thing — that changed my world.”

This conference is significant for Julianne because a few months earlier she married Brooks Laich and it would be a month or two later she would reveal to him that she’s “not straight.”
