During GLAAD’s Sunday (April 26) Together In Pride: You Are Not Alone hosted by Billy Eichner and Lilly Singh, numerous LGBTQ luminaries and allies appeared via their homes from quarantine to raise awareness of how hard LGBTQ centers around the country are being hit by drops in donations during the coronavirus pandemic. Donations raised during the event support CenterLink, which distributes funds to more than 250 LGBTQ centers in order to help fund shelters for LGBTQ homeless youth, HIV testing, mental health counseling, medical care and much more.
Longtime ally Barbra Streisand made a special voice-over appearance during the event to make the plea for “LGBTQ centers seriously affected by COVID-19.”
“I know that times are tough, but I really hope you’ll help save these organizations,” Streisand said. “If they close their doors [LGBTQ people] may not have a meal or a place to go.”
Lambert also appeared during Together In Pride: You Are Not Alone to announce a new charitable partnership between his Feel Something Foundation and GLAAD. “For years, I’d do these performances and you wear something on stage and then it sits in your closet,” Lambert shared. Well, now pieces of Glambert’s fabulous on-stage wardrobe can be yours — for a price, but that money will all go to a good cause. “I’m partnering with eBay to launch an online auction,” he revealed. “All the proceeds go directly to GLAAD.” You can check out what’s available here.
