Outloud: Raising Voices Announces Live Concerts In Partnership With Twitch To Kick Off Pride Month 2021 - Tickets On Sale Now For June 4th - June 6th At The LA Memorial Coliseum
OUTLOUD: Raising Voices, the award-winning LGBTQ+ PRIDE artist series, kicks off Pride Month 2021 and a return to live events with a three-day concert June 4th – 6th, 2021. The celebration will connect with a global audience through an exclusive streaming partnership with Twitch, the interactive live streaming service.
This year, OUTLOUD joins forces with Pride Live’s Stonewall Day, a global campaign that elevates awareness and support for the Stonewall legacy and the continued fight for full LGBTQ+ equality. In partnership with Stonewall Day, each day will profile and support various LGBTQ+ charities, namely Stonewall Day’s annual beneficiaries Trans Tech Social and Trans Lash, and OUTLOUD’s PRIDE partner cities from around the nation.
– Ann Marie Gothard, Co-Founder of Stonewall Day
“We are honored to partner with OUTLOUD to bring our collective voices together to speak on behalf and in support of the LGBTQ+ community. At its core, Stonewall Day is a day to remember how far we have come and a reminder there is still more work to be done to achieve full LGBTQ+ equality. We are extremely proud to further advance our global movement that celebrates a very important event in history, champions inclusivity, and hopefully inspires the next generation.”
The event not only marks one of the first major, global events to kick-off PRIDE month in June, but a triumphant return to an in-person PRIDE, hosting fans at a safe experience at the iconic Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in downtown Los Angeles. The event is closely following all LA County health and safety protocols to ensure an enjoyable and responsible event. Guests can purchase tickets at Ticketmaster.
