Elton and David Furnish have been added to the list of co-hosts for YouTube's virtual Pride celebration, taking place on the 25th of June at 3 p.m. EST/noon PST.
They join an already packed lineup of YouTube Pride 2021 hosts, each of whom will helm their own pride parties on their respective YouTube channels during the multi-hour event. The other hosts include Demi Lovato, Olly Alexander with Mawaan Rizwan, Trixie Mattel, and Daniel Howell.
During YouTube Pride 2021, viewers will enjoy musical performances and special guests, but will also be encouraged to help the LGBTQ+ community by raising funds for the Elton John AIDS Foundation and the Trevor Project in the States as well as akt in the UK.
The Trevor Project provides crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning young people under twenty-five; akt supports 16-25 year-olds, who identify as LGBTQ, and are facing or experiencing homelessness or living in a hostile environment.
