R&B singer Kehlani and pop star Tove Lo will headline the 2018 L.A. Pride Festival on the Park Stage (647 N San Vicente Blvd., West Hollywood, Calif.) on June 9 and June 10.
Kehlani will perform on June 9. Her music credentials include a Grammy nomination for her 2015 mixtape “You Should Be Here” and a GLAAD Media Award nomination for her latest album, “SweetSexySavage.” The 22-year-old has been open about her sexuality telling Complex, “I’ve dated both men and women” in 2015.
“Sex is biological, but gender is mental. I’ve been with people who aren’t what they’re born into. You fall in love with a person’s mind, you fall in love with a person’s soul, not with whatever’s down there,” she added.
Lo, 30, will take the stage on June 10. The Swedish singer is known for her chart-topping hit singles “Habits (Stay High),” “Talking Body” and “Disco Tits.” She is also openly bisexual.
“Being open and owning my sexuality in both ways—with both men and women—I think that’s just never been a big deal,” Lo told Attitude in 2016.
Gregory Alexander, CSW Board Member and Programming Lead for the 2018 LA Pride Festival hailed the two women as performers that illustrate L.A. Pride’s #JustBe theme.
“Kehlani and Tove Lo are two of the most daring women in music today. We’re excited to see how they’ll lead the raw and authentic voice of this year’s festival. They embody everything we mean when we say #JUSTBE at L.A. Pride,” Alexander said in the press release.
