Can’t Cancel Pride

We’re about to enter our second pride month in the global pandemic. There’s no doubt Covid-19 has significantly impacted our LGBTQ+ family, but Procter & Gamble and iHeartMedia are making sure nothing cancels the spirit of the LGBTQ+ movement with their second annual Can’t Cancel Pride. The virtual benefit will raise support and visibility for the LGBTQ+ community with special guests and performances.

We’re proud to join them this year!
