Kesha Celebrates Pride Month With Stonewall Day Show

To mark Pride Month and Stonewall Day 2022, on June 24 Kesha will take the stage in front of New York City’s Stonewall Inn.

In addition to Kesha (born Kesha Rose Sebert,) the event will feature performances from Betty, Mila Jam, and Shea Diamond, as well video messages from Barack Obama, Rufus Wainwright, Adam Lambert, Billy Porter, Conchita Wurst, Tom Daley, Chelsea Clinton, and Dustin Lance Black.

In a statement about the show, Kesha said “I am so honored to be a part of this historic event,”“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, and 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, and I will never back down. Come dance with me!”

Established five years ago by Pride Live organization, Stonewall Day marks the anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. A pivotal moment in the gay liberation movement, the uprising took place over several days between June 28 – July 3, 1969, in response to a violent police raid on the Stonewall Inn, one of several gay and lesbian bars frequently targeted by cops in Greenwich Village.

Ticket information for Stonewall Day 2022 will be available via Pride Live, as well as the social media channels of the various performers. The event will also stream live on Pride Live’s YouTube channel from 1 to 3 p.m. ET.
