GLAAD has announced that it will host “Together in Pride: You are Not Alone” a livestream event on Sunday April 26th at 8P EST on their YouTube channel & Facebook Live. The event will highlight the LGBTQ response to COVID-19 & amplify messages of acceptance & affirmation to the LGBTQ community & people living with HIV during this unprecedented time. Performers will included Kesha & Melissa Etheridge with special guests including Billy Eichner, Matt Bomer, Lilly Singh, Adam Lambert, Bebe Rexha, Dan Levy, Mj Rodriguez, Wilson Cruz, Kathy Griffin, Gigi Gorgeous, Nats Getty, Michelle Visage, Javier Muñoz, Sean Hayes, Sharon Stone & Tatiana Maslany. Sarah Kate Ellis GLAAD President & CEO stated, “At a time when some LGBTQ people could be isolating in homes that are not affirming, GLAAD is bringing together the biggest LGBTQ stars & allies to send messages of love, support & acceptance. So many LGBTQ people, especially our youth, depend on support from local community centers around the country & during this time of financial distress, we must come together as a community to ensure that all LGBTQ organizations can continue their life-saving work.” The livestream will raise funds for LGBTQ community centers that are members of CenterLink a coalition of more than 250 LGBTQ community centers globally. Denise Spivak, Interim CEO of CenterLink concluded, “LGBTQ centers are the heart of the community & throughout the COVID-19 pandemic these centers have continued to provide vital connectivity & services, pivoting to virtual programming, modifying in-person services when possible & ensuring that their communities have resources & support when they need it the most.”
