Looks like 2020 is the year of Pabllo Vittar. After her history-making stint as the face of Calvin Klein, the Brazil-based musician is announcing Pride With Pabllo & Friends, a worldwide virtual event to benefit The Trevor Project. And what the lineup of friends she has.
"I'm excited for you to join me and my friends as we honor and celebrate Pride together," the drag performer and singer said in a release. "It's going to be a party, but we will continue to spread the message of inclusivity and love because no matter what anyone says: Pride is not canceled!"
The event, which will air on June 28 will function as one of the after parties for Global Pride. Organized with Plus1, it will begin airing at 1 p.m. PST, 4 p.m. EST. Of the friends to perform Betty Who, Big Freedia, Lauren Jauregui, Princess Nokia, Pussy Riot, Rina Sawayama, Thalia, Tove Lo, Diplo, Dorian Electra, and more. Fans can RSVP online.
"Remember babies, that LGBTQ+ rights would not exist today if it weren't for the black community and contributions from activists," Vittar said. "We must celebrate the brave people that fought for our rights and must continue to push forward until we all have equal rights - because Pride is a fight against discrimination and a stride towards justice for all. Happy Pride and remember Black lives matter!"
It's likely that the 25-year-old, who is the most followed drag queen on Instagram worldwide, will perform music from her recently-released third album 111, which was recently released. Vittar will also perform during Global Pride, prior to her event. This all comes after she helped to host Festival do Orgulho Live in a new online format as another iteration of a Digital Pride, featuring the likes of Aretuza Lovi, Pepita, Urias, and Mateus Carrilho.
