Hannah Hart and LGBTQ Celebrities Join INTO and BuzzFeed for Pride Live To Benefit GLAAD On YouTube

Today, INTO is joining BuzzFeed and YouTube to re-up the telethon–only this time, it’s queer AF.

Hannah Hart is hosting Pride Live, and the star-studded three-hour special, airing for free on YouTube, will raise money for GLAAD and all the work the non-profit does to make sure LGBTQ people are not only visible but accurately represented in all areas of the media. Joining the My Drunk Kitchen star is a line-up of queer and trans influencers and icons who will perform and participate in the variety show featuring games and giveaways, all in an effort to give some much-needed attention and cash to GLAAD.

Here’s some of the talent you can expect to see pop by Pride Live: Grace Helbig, Mamrie Hart, Shea Diamond, Sam Stryker, Stephen LaConte, Ryann Graham, Fernando Padron, Curly Velasquez, Kelsey Darragh, Wrabel, Laith Ashley, Amber’s Closet, Ava Pearl, Ryan Cassata, Brandon Stansell, Miles McKenna, Stephanie Rice, Jacob Tobia, Miles Jai, Trevor Moran, Kingsley, Alexandra Grey, Isis King, Trace Lysette, Sam Tsui, D’Lo, Dexter Mayfield, Jazzmyne Robbins, Flula Borg, Alyson Stoner, Raymond Braun, Brittani Nichols, Jake Shears, Betty Who, Asapscience, and Ashly Perez.

“There is something exhilarating about being a part of a live moment,” Hart says. “As an entertainer who got my start on YouTube, I want the next generation to get to know GLAAD as intimately as I do. I wanted to launch ‘Pride Live,’ to showcase creative queer forces – from both online and off – to deliver an unforgettable show for a cause dear to my heart. I am so thrilled to be partnered with Buzzfeed and INTO to bring this show to life.”

Join us as we stream Pride Live from GLAAD’s YouTube — today, Friday, June 29 from 12-3pm PST.
