On Thursday, May 14, from 6–8 p.m. PDT (9–11 p.m. EDT), the Los Angeles LGBT Center presents Rainbowthon, a two-hour event to be livestreamed on the Center’s Facebook, YouTube, and Twitch channels with all proceeds benefiting its CARE Fund, which was established in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Hosted by dancer, performer, and influencer Frankie Grande, the virtual concert will include unforgettable performances and appearances by some of the Center’s notable supporters and Broadway’s favorites: Kristin Chenoweth; Jewel; Margaret Cho; Leslie Jordan; Ross Mathews; Carson Kressley; Michelle Visage; Deborah Cox; Taylor Dayne; Betty Who; Marissa Jaret Winokur; Courtney Reed; Shoshana Bean; Susan Egan; Laura Osnes; Emma Hunton; DJ “Shangela” Pierce; Gigi Gorgeous; Colleen Ballinger (a.k.a. Miranda Sings); and Glozell Green—just to name a few. Additional talent to be announced!

“Many people in my life have benefited from the services provided by the Los Angeles LGBT Center and, after seeing the work they do firsthand with LGBT youth and seniors, I knew this would be an organization I’d be supporting for years to come,” said Grande. “In Rainbowthon, expect to smile, laugh, and have a good time while also highlighting the incredible work the Center has done for the community during these crazy times!”

Amid the local and statewide shutdowns due to coronavirus, the Center remains committed as a first responder for the LGBT community. The Center—known as the world’s largest provider of programs and services to LGBT people—continues to serve those in need, particularly youth experiencing homelessness and seniors, with health services, mental health services, case management, and other life-saving and life-enriching assistance. Additionally, the Center is one of the nation’s few Federally Qualified Health Centers with providers who specialize in primary care for LGBT people and those living with HIV.


To continue providing vital programs and services to those in need during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Los Angeles LGBT Center will livestream a two-hour concert and event hosted by Frankie Grande and benefiting the Center’s CARE Fund.
