Pabllo Vittar hosting Pride livestream w/ Yaeji, Big Freedia, Princess Nokia & more
The coronavirus pandemic means that celebrating Pride in person is off this year, but Brazilian drag superstar Pabllo Vittar has announced a virtual celebration, "Pride with Pabllo and Friends," streaming on Sunday, June 28 at 4 PM ET.
"It’s going to be a party," Pabllo says, "but we will continue to spread the message of inclusivity and love because no matter what anyone says; Pride is not canceled! Remember babies, that LGBTQ+ rights would not exist today if it weren’t for the Black community and contributions from activists. We must celebrate the brave people that fought for our rights and continue to push forward until we all have equal rights. Pride is a fight against discrimination and a stride towards justice for all. Happy Pride and remember Black Lives Matter!"
Big Freedia, Yaeji, Princess Nokia, Pussy Riot, Rina Sawayama, Aluna, Diplo, Madame Gandhi, Sofi Tukker and more are set to perform, and the event benefits The Trevor Project, which provides crisis intervention and suicide prevention services for LGBTQ+ youth.
