The Event Has Raised Funds For Multiple Organizations
The benefit will raise funds and awareness for a number of organizations; including GLAAD, The Trevor Project, SAGE, and many more. In its first two years, Can’t Cancel Pride has raised over $8.3 million for these organizations. In 2021 alone, the event reached 6.3 million viewers and listeners.
“As we’ve proven over the past two years, you Can’t Cancel Pride. Even with a global pandemic raging; we’ve been able to bring the community together with the most influential artists to celebrate Pride. Also, to raise consciousness and funds for some heroic organizations while working to support the needs of the LGBTQ+ community in communities around the nation;” states Gayle Troberman, Chief Marketing Officer for iHeartMedia. “This year is a big moment as we emerge from lockdown to celebrate diversity and inclusion; while continuing to champion the LGBTQ organizations that create a more equal and welcoming world for all.”
Elton John Will Receive the First-Ever Impact Award
This year, Elton John will be honored with the first-ever Impact Award for his humanitarian work through the Elton John AIDS Foundation, which is celebrating its 30th year. The event will recognize the history and incredible impact his organization has made to overcome the stigma, discrimination, and neglect that keeps us from ending AIDS.
