Fans of Demi Lovato on both coasts will
get a chance to see her perform next month at Gay Pride events in Los
Angeles and New York City.
The 21-year-old Lovato will pull double
duty in Los Angeles, serving as grand marshal of the L.A. Pride
Parade in addition to performing on June 8.
The singer will headline NYC Pride's
28th annual Dance on the Pier in Tribeca on June 29.
“It's such an honor to be part of
both L.A. and NYC Pride celebrations this year,” Lovato
said in a statement, a reference to the 45th
anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, widely considered the seminal
event behind the modern gay rights movement.
“I have been an active advocate of
the LGBT community and am wholly committed to supporting
individuality and being comfortable in one's own skin. I am thrilled
to be a part of both events as they are a wonderful celebration of
independence and self-confidence,” Lovato said.
