For years, the Spice Girls have served as icons and inspirations for their LGBTQ fans. But this summer, Sporty Spice herself is showing even more love for her queer fans.
On Thursday (May 13), Melanie C announced that she would be performing at this year’s New York City Pride festival and its closing ceremonies, joining the ranks of performers like Grace Jones, Melissa Etheridge and Pabllo Vittar. This will be her first appearance at a North American Pride event.
But that is only the beginning for the singer’s summer -- Melanie C will also embark on her WorldPride world tour, including dates in Brazil, Amsterdam, Germany and the UK, with the London queer collective Sink the Pink and their bevy of drag queens. The stage show will involve “all the hits, a sequined cat suit (with Adidas, of course), and four extra Spices in drag,” according to a statement.
