“As the country is returning back to normal and we are slowly starting to gather again, LGBTQ+ communities around the world are still feeling the devastating effects of COVID-19,” Gayle Troberman, Chief Marketing Officer for iHeartMedia, said in a statement. “We look forward to once again celebrating the incredible voices and allies of the LGBTQ+ community with an amazing night of music that will honor Pride and the communities’ fight for equal rights, all while benefiting six remarkable nonprofits that make an everyday positive impact.”
In 2020, the “Can’t Cancel Pride” event raised over $4 million to benefit the LGBTQ+ communities most impacted by COVID-19; following the 2021 virtual concert, “Can’t Cancel Pride” will again partner with Greater Cincinnati Foundation to administer and distribute financial support raised by the event to LGBTQ+ organizations, including GLAAD, SAGE, the Trevor Project, the National Black Justice Coalition, CenterLink, and OutRight Action International.
