InStyle's editorial guidelines Updated on June 17, 2020 @ 08:42AM Pin Share Tweet Email Billy Porter, Katy Perry, Sia, Adam Lambert, Big Freedia, Melissa Etheridge, and more stars are set to perform at the 'Can't Cancel Pride' benefit to raise money for COVID-19 relief event. The performances will be virtual via iHeartRadio and will raise money (a goal of $5 million) for six organizations: National Black Justice Coalition, The Trevor Project, Outright, GLAAD, SAGE, and CenterLink. In a press release, iHeartRadio Chief Marketing Officer Gayle Troberman explained why they have decided to do the fundraiser. "There’s no question COVID-19 has impacted the LGBTQ+ community in a variety of ways, and at this time in the U.S., the struggle for equality and inclusion has never been more important," she said.“Now is a time we need to come together to support the organizations that help bring critical resources to LGBTQ people in need and Can’t Cancel Pride aims to do just that." An Estimated 15,000 People Marched In Support of Black Transgender Lives In New York This Weekend Pride month usually consists of hundreds of parades around the country, almost all of which have been canceled. In light of the Black Lives Matter movement, and the killings of Black Trans women including Riah Milton and Dominique “Rem'Mie” Fells, LGBTQ+ organizers have made it clear that Pride needs to focus on fighting for Black lives in the community. In New York City on Sunday, an estimated 15,000 people marched for Black Trans Lives Matter in Brooklyn, NY. The event will stream live on iHeartRadio's Facebook page on June 25 at 9 P.M. EST.
