Cause the party don’t start ’til Kesha walks in! The announcement that the ‘Tik Tok’ singer will be in San Diego on July 16 to perform at the city’s pride celebration comes shortly after her surprise performance at Coachella.
“We have come a long way with the equal rights movement, but we have so much more work to do,” the bisexual singer said in a statement.
“In my home state of Tennessee they recently passed anti-LGBT legislation — it’s another reminder that groups like Pride are so important, and I’m honored to be part of San Diego Prides event on July 16. I’ll never stop fighting for people who just want to be able to express themselves freely for who they are.”
Kesha, who is currently still stuck in her contract with Sony, will also headline Pittsburgh’s pride celebrations on June 11.
This is especially great news for the bisexual community as they often get a bad rep in both the straight and queer communities.
“I don’t love just men, I love people,” Kesha told Seventeen magazine in 2013. “It’s not about a gender…It’s just about the spirit that exudes from that other person you’re with.”
Just last month the activist gave a speech on human rights at the 2016 Nashville Equality Dinner.
“Fame is strange and unnatural and I’m grateful for it mainly because it has put me in a position where I can actually do something positive for the world, and that is really the best part of it,” she told the audience. “I love writing songs and I love making music, but this is the most rewarding part of it.”
“My message today is don’t be afraid to speak up against any injustice you experience. Don’t let people scare or shame you into changing the things about you that make you unique.”
