While Pride month is coming to an end, a star-studded cast of musicians and artists will take part in a special livestream event commemorating the anniversaries of the 1969 Stonewall Riots, and the Supreme Court’s 2015 ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges for marriage equality.
The special Stonewall Day event will be live-streamed on Friday from 11:45 p.m. to 2 p.m. Western Indonesian Time on Logo’s Facebook and YouTube pages.
Some of the biggest names in the music industry will participate in the global livestream, including Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Kesha, Demi Lovato and Hayley Kiyoko.
Cynthia Erivo, Christian Siriano, George Takei, Donatella Versace, Chelsea Clinton, Siriano, George Takei and Lilly Wachowski will also take part in the digital celebration, which will be hosted by trans advocate and model Geena Rocero.
Former United States president Barack Obama will deliver a message of support to the LGBTQ community during the livestream.
While the Stonewall Day event will be live-streamed for free, donations will be encouraged to raise funds for LGBTQ+ youth organizations that have been most affected by COVID-19.

“Since we launched Stonewall Day three years ago, our goal has been to honor those who stood up and bravely took action to ignite the fight for LGBTQ+ equality. The spirit of the Stonewall rebellion lives on in all of us. If our history has taught us anything, it is that our greatest moments have come from helping and supporting each other,” Dr. Yvette C. Burton, president of the Pride Live board of directors, said in a statement.
Although multiple Pride festivities have been canceled in the light of the coronavirus pandemic, Billy Porter and MJ Rodriguez will participate in a three-hour virtual march and rally to raise funds for the Marsha P. Johnson Institute and LGBTQ+ people of color.
