GRAMMY Museum Announces Celebrating Music With Pride Panel With Perfume Genius, Shamir, Shawnee & More
Last month marked the 50th anniversary of the first Pride march on June 28, 1970 in New York City on the first anniversary of the Stonewall riots. Now, the celebration continues, as the GRAMMY Museum has announced Celebrating Music With Pride, a special panel discussion between an esteemed panel of artists including with artists Perfume Genius, Lynn Gunn (PVRIS), Zebra Katz, Donna Missal, Shamir, and Shawnee.
The special discussion will commemorate the occasion and create a safe space for artists who identify as LGBTQ+ to reflect on what Pride means to them and how, specifically, this past Pride month resonated. The GRAMMY Museum will host the pre-taped panel, moderated by music journalist Eve Barlow, and premiere it live via Facebook on July 21.
