There's barely over a week left of Pride month, and LGBTQ+ activists and protestors have made every day count, showing up in droves to support the Black trans community at the Brooklyn Museum and sending a clear message that, to quote Marsha P. Johnson, there will be "no pride for some of us without liberation for all of us."

Now, them is celebrating the LGBTQ+ community with Out Now Live, a live broadcast event that will feature celebrities, music, storytelling, speeches and queer history in the making. The event will spotlight the Black trans women and queer people of color: Princess Nokia and King Princess will perform as part of a partnership with Pitchfork, and famous faces including Adam Lambert, Alok Vaid-Menon, Billy Eichner, Cara Delevingne, Carly Rae Jepsen, Cynthia Nixon, Hayley Kiyoko, Ianne Fields Stewart, Indya Moore, Julio Torres, Lea DeLaria, Raven-Symoné, Shangela, and Whoopi Goldberg will appear.

Presented by Polo Ralph Lauren, the broadcast—which serves as the event portion of themfest, an ongoing virtual and arts festival launched to uplift the work of LGBTQ+ artists amid the worldwide impact of COVID-19—will serve as a fundraiser for the Ali Forney Center, a New York City-based organization that aids LGBTQ+ youth experiencing homelessness. LGBTQ+ youth disproportionately experience homelessness, making this a chance to support a deeply worthy cause while surrounding yourself with a veritable who's who of modern-day queer culture.

Out Now Live will take place Monday, June 22, on YouTube Live at 8pm ET / 5pm PT.
