It's an amazing pride celebration.
Broadway Sings For PrideVProud attended the 5th annual Broadway Sings for Pride event on June 22nd which benefited the Tyler Clementi Foundation and celebrated Pride Month. We were wowed by the generosity and support shown by both performers and attendees who proved that the LGBTQ community is one of the most encouraging and compassionate groups out there. VProud founder and CEO Karen Cahn had the amazing opportunity to sit down with Broadway star Rebecca Larkin, androgynous supermodel Rain Dove, and Orange Is The New Black's Dascha Polanco to have honest conversations about all things pride, relationships, allies, and labels. Take a look below to see behind the scenes Broadway Sings For Pride selfies and for the opportunity to join in on the conversations Karen began, because these honest conversations are for all of us.
