Britney Spears, Selena Gomez, Barbra Streisand and Many More Share Love Letters to the LGBTQ Community

June 1st kicks off Billboard’s month long 30 Days of Pride, an initiative to highlight LGBTQ Pride Month. To celebrate, some of the biggest names in music have penned heartfelt love letters to the LGBTQ community, thanking them for both their strength and support.

“Your stories are what inspire me, bring me joy and make me and my sons strive to be better people," shared Britney Spears in her specially handwritten letter.

Barbra Streisand reflected on some of her earliest memories as a performer: “The first time I ever sang for a paying audience was at a gay club, The Lion, in Greenwich Village. I was 18 years old and had never been in a nightclub before. The gay community supported me from the start, and I will always be grateful.”

Sia, Christina Aguilera, Selena Gomez, Elton John, Celine Dion, Kelly Clarkson, Kacey Musgraves, RuPaul and Melissa Etheridge are among the 70+ musicians and LGBTQ activists who shared messages for this special project. Check them all out here.
