Genderqueer singer, musician, and producer King Princess will take San Diego Pride by storm on Saturday 13 July.
The LGBTI festival in southern California runs between 12-14 July.
San Diego Pride
On Friday, there will be the usual Friday-night Spirit of Stonewall Rally, whereas the march will take place on Saturday.
Floats and marchers will take to the streets on 13 July. Then, the annual parade will be followed by the first day of the festival, which will continue on Sunday.
This year’s theme is Stonewall 50: A Legacy of Liberation. The theme aligned with the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, to honor and reflect on the Stonewall generation, their activism, and all that the LGBTI community has gained through their efforts.
King Princess and Melissa Etheridge
One year after her debut single 1950, King Princess will headline one of the biggest events in California, alongside Melissa Etheridge.
‘Playing San Diego Pride is a true honor,’ she said.
‘Pride celebrations are a pillar of liberation and representation in our community and a reminder of our ability to bring happiness to one another through inclusion.’
The Pussy Is God singer furthermore added: ‘It’s about giving each other a home in which we can share our truest expression of self without judgment. Our founding mother Marsha fought to give us our space to express ourselves freely and to celebrate our love. I’m honored to be a part of this loving community. Come rock with me and Melissa!’
Previous San Diego Pride performers include Ke$ha, TLC, Kathy Griffin, JoJo, Kim Petras, and Margaret Cho.
