Cher will host two fundraisers later
this month for Hillary Clinton.
According to Politico, Cher will
hold an LGBT fundraiser on Friday, August 19 in Miami Beach. The
following day, Cher will appear at a fundraiser in Fire Island Pines,
New York, a summer travel destination for the LGBT community.
Tony Lima, a co-host of the event
taking place in Miami, told Politico that the fundraisers show
“who is a friend of our community and who isn't,” a reference to
Donald Trump, who appeared this week at an event in Orlando alongside
numerous opponents of LGBT rights.
