On Thursday, June 3, beginning at 6 p.m. PT (9 p.m. ET), TogetheRide presents Frankie Grande’s second annual Rainbowthon! The concert will be streamed live across the Los Angeles LGBT Center’s social media platforms with proceeds benefiting the Center’s life-saving and life-enhancing programs and services impacted by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Hosted again by dancer, performer, and influencer Grande, the virtual concert will include performances and appearances by some of the Center’s notable supporters: JoJo Siwa; Jewel; Alexandra Billings; MacDoesIt; Chaunté Wayans; Gizzle; Jasmine Davis; Shoshana Bean; Alyson Stoner; Laith Ashley; Rayvon Owen; R.K. Russell & Corey O’Brien; Kenton Chen; and Shea Diamond—just to name a few. Additional talent to be announced!

“Every time I mention the Los Angeles LGBT Center, someone tells me how the organization has helped them, whether it’s getting an HIV test, seeing a mental health specialist, or simply finding their community,” says Grande. “I am immensely grateful for the Center and cannot wait to bring more laughs and smiles to you—and raise more critical funds for this amazing organization. Let’s start Pride month by doing some good. Join us on June 3 for an incredible evening of glitter rainbows and unforgettable entertainment!”

Throughout the pandemic, the Center has remained open to continue providing vital programs and services to those who need them the most: youth and seniors, transgender and non-binary people, and those living with HIV and AIDS.

“We're beyond thrilled that Rainbowthon is returning for a second consecutive year!” said AIDS/LifeCycle Ride Director Tracy Evans. “When Frankie came up with the fabulous idea last year, it was the Center's first attempt at producing a virtual fundraiser, and it proved to be a fun event and a wonderful success. Frankie's ardent support for the Center, AIDS/LifeCycle, and TogetheRide is truly heroic. We can't thank him enough. Please tune in on June 3 and—knowing Frankie—there are likely to be a few surprises during the show!”

The first Rainbowthon, which debuted in May 2020, raised an impressive $55,000 benefiting the Center’s CARE Fund established in response to the pandemic.
