(LOS ANGELES) The Pride PAC, the nation's first LGBT Super PAC established in 2012 is officially launching an 8-City, 6-State #IMWITHHER PRIDE BRUNCH TOUR to raise funds for Hillary Clinton's run for President of the United States. The Pride PAC aided in President Obama's re-election in 2012 and is kicking off this election season with a national tour of brunches during 8 Gay Pride celebrations across America.
Pride PAC Founder Marcus Lovingood said today in an official statement:
“Donald Trump is the biggest threat that has faced our country since the rise of ISIS and it is up to the LGBT people of the United States to stand up, band together and stand with Hillary Clinton to defeat this cancer that has wreaked havoc on over 60 years of progress.”
Each brunch will feature local LGBT leaders and VIP guests, including a hosted bar, music, a silent auction and more to not only raise money for Hillary, but also band our community together behind her as she faces off against Donald Trump in November. In response to why Pride PAC is launching such an initiative, Lovingood stated:
“The power of the LGBT community and allies have been completely underestimated, and we have had enough. Not only do we have money, but numbers and votes. That combination is more lethal than even the likes of the Koch brothers could even imagine and we’re ready to let lose. The time has come for us to rise up and show what the power of the purse really means in this country.”
Funds raised across the tour will go toward Pride PAC’s mission to help spread awareness in the LGBT community through viral and social media advertising campaigns and online content. Lovingood and Pride PAC event staff will use Facebook Live video to document their adventures across the tour to provide a livestreamed interactive experience for online viewers into each Pride destination.
