NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess) — Pride Live Nation, a social advocacy initiative, announced that they are staging the first annual Stonewall Day.
Scheduled for June 28th, Stonewall Day will be the kick off for a series of events that will lead up to the 50th anniversary of the 1969 Stonewall Uprising.
As a part of the initiative, more than 50 celebrities, activists, and community leaders have been named Stonewall Inn Ambassadors, who will participate in events over the next 12 months designed to raise awareness for the Stonewall Inn Gives Back Initiative.
Stonewall Inn Ambassadors include Chelsea Clinton, Bryan Lourd, Laverne Cox, Robbie Rogers, Anna Wintour, Geena Rocero and Cleve Jones, among others.
To kick off this year’s campaign, activist, singer and songwriter Lauren Jauregui will donate a special fan experience to celebrate her 22nd birthday. The funds raised will go SIGBI to support the organization’s educational, strategic, and financial assistance programs.
“As a Stonewall Inn Ambassador, I am so proud to be a part of this campaign and celebrate those who came before us and fought for our equality against intense discrimination and aggression,” said Jauregui. “Stonewall Day is the beginning of the official celebration of the upcoming 50th anniversary of Stonewall, and I encourage all my fans, allies, and believers in equality to join in and text your donation today.”
Jauregui is currently working on her debut album and just got off the road after serving as the opening act for Halsey’s Hopeless Fountain Kingdom World Tour.
