Global pop star Kesha will be headlining this year’s Stonewall Day event in New York City, celebrating pride month.
Stonewall Day Takes Over New York City on June 24
The legendary pride event Stonewall Day will take place on Friday, June 24; outside of the NYC landmarked building, the Stonewall Inn in New York City. Launched in 2018, Stonewall Day is a national day of awareness to commemorate the anniversary of the 1969 Stonewall Riots.
“I am so honored to be a part of this historic event,” said Kesha. “As a forever advocate for the LGBTQ+ community; I’m excited to embark on this monumental occasion with my friends at Pride Live and perform for Stonewall Day. Stonewall is a special place for the queer community. I cannot wait to honor and celebrate how far we have come; while standing in the conviction that the fight for equality in this country is ever upon us. I will never back down. Come dance with me!”
“We’re thrilled to have Kesha headline this year’s event and be a part of LGBTQ+ history;” said Ann Marie Gothard, Pride Live Board President. “She has used her platform as an artist to consistently advocate for the LGBTQ+ community. Her music inspires people with messages of hope, triumph, and determination; which aligns with Pride Live’s mission to accelerate LGBTQ+ awareness and support.”
