Live is ready to celebrate the history of LGBTQ resistance with a special live event. Plans for the third annual Stonewall Day were announced yesterday. This year the event will take place online instead of in-person. The livestream will take place on Friday and it’s set to benefit LGBTQ organizations that have been financially impacted during the coronavirus outbreak. Barack Obama is set to deliver a message while stars like Taylor Swift, Demi Lovato, Katy Perry and more will offer messages of support too.
It's here! Stonewall Day's lineup of guests and performers appearing in our global Livestream event this Friday, June 26! In partnership with @WarnerMedia, @LogoTV, @Nasdaq, and @PrideMediaInc. pic.twitter.com/ehJzhJtDOG

Justin Timberlake took a moment to speak about the lessons he and his wife Jessica Biel are teaching their son. He wrote on Instagram boys grow up to be father. I like about that a lot these days. We try to teach our son to love and to respect everyone. We teach him that all people are all created equal and that no one should be treated differently. We teach him this because one day he will go on to teach his kids the same. It’s a cycle. I’m grateful for both of my dads and my mother for teaching me those lessons from the beginning. I’m grateful for my son who is always teaching me right back.

Boys grow up to be fathers. I think about that a lot these days. We try to teach our son to love and to respect everyone — we teach him that all people are all created equal, and that no one should be treated differently because of the color of their skin. We teach him this because one day, he will go on to teach his kids the same. It’s a cycle. And right now, as we all work to undo generations of discrimination that have plagued our system and our communities across this country… I’m reminded today that the first lessons start at home. Im grateful for both of my dads and my mother for teaching me those lessons from the beginning. And for listening to me when I had something to say that they hadn’t learned. I pray for that humility with my own son. I’m grateful for my wife, who made me a father, and is my favorite person/partner/teacher/friend in all of it. I’m grateful for my son, who is always ALWAYS teaching me right back. ⠀ ⠀ Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads out there. While we owe our sons and daughters these lessons in the places where the doors close at night, I hope you are as inspired as I am to make them THE TRUTH in the places that same door opens every morning and we send them out to discover. There’s more to do. And we are built for it. After all, we are the Dads. Sending my love to you and yours.
