Britney Teams Up to End Anti-LGBT Violence in Brazil
Anti-LGBTQ violence is on the rise in Brazil, horrifyingly.
To raise awareness of the growing problem, Brazilian pop singer/activist Yann enlisted some famous faces, including Godney herself, to be featured in a video.
The charity single called “Igual,” which serves as the theme song for this year’s Rio Pride, plays throughout the video.
Celine Dion, Demi Lovato, Lorde, The Chainsmokers, Boy George, Diplo, Chelsea Handler, Melanie C and Jason Mraz are among the many stars who also show their support in the clip.
All proceeds from sales and streaming of “Igual” go to NGO Grupo Arco-Íris, which aids Brazil’s queer community.
“Unfortunately, most of the world isn’t aware that Brazil is an incredibly dangerous place for the LGBTI+ community. It was important for me to help shine a stronger light on what’s happening here, because Brazil’s actually the country with the highest LGBTI+ murder rate in the world. Yet, all of this is disguised under our dichotomous liberal lifestyle,” Yann says.
