Melissa Etheridge to march with GLAAD in historic WorldPride march in New York City

NEW YORK (June 26, 2019) - Today, GLAAD, the world's largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) media advocacy organization, announced that singer-songwriter Melissa Etheridge will be joining GLAAD's float in the WorldPride March in New York City on June 30. Etheridge will also be performing at the World Pride Closing Ceremony in Times Square that evening.

Since the release of her unforgettable self-titled 1988 debut, Melissa Etheridge's incredible career to date includes sales of over 25 million albums, five platinum and three multi-platinum records, 15 Grammy Award nominations and two wins, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and an Academy Award for 'I Need to Wake Up' from the climate change documentary An Inconvenient Truth. Her 2016 release, Memphis Rock & Soul, debuted at #1 on Billboard's blues chart. Etheridge has selflessly dedicated herself as an activist for human rights, LGBTQ issues, breast cancer awareness, and alternative medical approaches.

'Melissa Etheridge is not only a musical legend but also a LGBTQ icon,' said GLAAD president and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis. 'Throughout her career, she has been such a trailblazer for LGBTQ people in music and has used her voice to advocate for equality and acceptance. We are so honored to have her march with us as we come together for this historic Pride celebration in New York City.'

Etheridge is currently on an expansive US tour in support of her new album The Medicine Show, which was released in April. The tour includes special summer dates with Pat Benatar & Neil Geraldo and Liz Phair.

Kicking off at 12pm on June 30, marchers in WorldPride Parade will step off at 26th Street and 5th Avenue near Madison Square Park, making their way down past Stonewall National Monument, and then finishing the march at 23rd Street and 7th Avenue. Find out more information about the WorldPride March [at https://2019-worldpride-stonewall50.nycpride.org/events/nyc-pride-march/].

GLAAD rewrites the script for LGBTQ acceptance. As a dynamic media force, GLAAD tackles tough issues to shape the narrative and provoke dialogue that leads to cultural change. GLAAD protects all that has been accomplished and creates a world where everyone can live the life they love.
