Isn’t it so beautiful to see people of all gender identities, sexualities, and backgrounds come together to celebrate love? Right now across the world, most Pride events can’t happen face to face, but that won’t stop our rainbow flags from flying high! Even a pandemic can’t cancel pride!
Here at THP HQ, we stand alongside our LGBTQ+ brothers, sisters, and siblings, to unite in our pride and the fight for true equality. Love is love, and love wins. We are so excited to bring you the latest news, on this year’s Can’t Cancel Pride, star-studded benefit concert. Streaming live on June 4th, this is the second annual Can’t Cancel Pride event, showing that nothing can cancel the spirit of this community, and the fight for equality.
This Line Up Is Fire!
To support this amazing cause, many of our fav LGBTQIA+ artists and allies will be performing and taking part, to take this event to the next level. This year’s celebrity list is pure fire! Get ready for Jennifer Hudson, JoJo Siwa, Hayley Kiyoko, Troye Sivan, Bebe Rexha, Demi Lovato, Marshmello, P!nk, Ricky Martin, Tate McRae, Lil Nas X, and more! The benefit event will be hosted by Elvis Duran and Bebe, who is also slated to perform her newest single ‘Sacrifice.’
Who are you most excited to see perform? We cannot wait to see our faves, who have owned their true selves this year, and have spread their pride to us all. As fans, we share our pride with each and every one of them – From JoJo Siwa who shared her WLW relationship news with us in January, to Demi Lovato who recently shared their non-binary identity with us. We are so excited to see them all take to the virtual stage for this incredibly vital event.
