At Oniracom, we are committed to creating a culture of belonging and inclusion where diverse individuals can form a healthy, collaborative community. Pride Month is an opportunity for us to demonstrate that commitment. We look forward to engaging with, spotlighting, and celebrating our LGBTQA+ community.
As safety measures continue to drive events to be held online rather than virtual, parades and other activities this year are primarily virtual. While we eagerly look forward to a potential parade in Santa barbara by the Pacific Pride Foundation in August (if conditions permit), there are ways we can engage with our local community and the greater community of individuals who are celebrating Pride Month this year.
Can’t Cancel Pride:
A Fundraising Event Supporting the LGBTQ+ Community
On June 4th, iHeartRadio and P&G are presenting the return of Can’t Cancel Pride – a celebration to raise visibility and funds for the LGBTQ+ community.
The event will feature performances and appearances from Bebe Rexha, Brothers Osborne, Busy Phillips, Demi Lovato, Gus Kenworthy, Hayley Kiyoko, Jennifer Hudson, JoJo Siwa, Lil Nas X, Marshmello, MJ Rodriguez, Nina West, P!NK, Ricky Martin, Regard, Troye Sivan, Tate McRae and more.
Together, we can show the LGBTQ+ community they are not alone and raise much needed funds for the organizations providing life-saving resources and services like GLAAD, SAGE, The Trevor Project, the National Black Justice Coalition, CenterLink, and OutRight Action International.
Local organizations that you can support all year long:
