The Can’t Cancel Pride COVID-19 relief benefit for the LGBTQ+ Community is packed with an amazing lineup including Katy Perry, Adam Lambert, Big Freedia, Billy Porter, Kim Petras, Melissa Etheridge, Sia, and Ricky Martin.
Produced by iHeartMedia and Procter & Gamble, the benefit aims to raise visibility and funds for LGBTQ+ communities impacted by the coronavirus. The special is one-hour long and it will be hosted by Z100 on-air personality Elvis Duran and actress Laverne Cox.
Can’t Cancel Pride will air on iHeartRadio’s Facebook and Instagram pages, iHeartRadio’s PrideRadio.com and broadcast on iHeartMedia stations nationwide and on the iHeartRadio app on June 25.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the complex and significant obstacles facing the LGBTQ+ community,” said Marc Pritchard, chief brand officer at P&G.
“We must continue to fight hate and intolerance against all people while redoubling our efforts to elevate LGBTQ+ visibility and providing support for those in need. ‘Can’t Cancel Pride’ is about showing the community that they are not alone and that they are seen and loved, even when stay-at-home orders have closed community centers and support systems that millions of LGBTQ+ people rely on every day,” he continued.
Viewers can get involved by sharing their Pride moments on social media with the hashtag #CantCancelPride during the month of June. If you want to donate to the cause, visit cantcancelpride.com or text “RAINBOW” to 56512.
