The singer Camila Cabello will perform this Sunday in Los Angeles a concert to finance a new aid fund for Florida organizations that fight against a new state law known as “Don’t Say Gay”which the Cuban-American considers “discriminatory.”
Lambda Legal, a Florida legal group that rejects the new law signed by Governor Ron DeSantis, announced Cabello’s “benefit concert” on Saturday. “to help us challenge discriminatory law.”
The new law, enacted by the Republican on March 28, prohibits talking about sexual identity in schools.
“As someone who grew up and still lives in FloridaI am horrified that my home state is putting the health and lives of young Floridians at risk by passing this law and inviting discrimination in our schools,” Cabello lamented, according to Variety magazine. The law, baptized by its critics such as “Don’t Say Gay” prohibits teachers from discussing sexuality and gender identity in classrooms.
“We must protect every student and respect every family,” emphasized the 25-year-old singer-songwriter, a three-time Grammy nominee.
the new background “Protect All Kids” seeks to raise half a million dollars to help the organizations Lambda Legal and Equality Florida to “stop this hateful law,” the singer emphasized.
The idea is to support affected students, teachers and families with resources. The law now allows parents to file lawsuits against the school district and receive damages if teachers fail to comply.
Cabello’s concert will be in a private venue and will include Valentina, known for the “reality shows” RuPaul’s Drag Race, and transgender singer Shea Diamond, Lambda Legal detailed. “We are ready to sing, dance and fight for LGBTQ+ youth,” the group added on its Twitter account.
On April 29, Cabello received the Pride Award from the Hispanic Federation (HF) during a gala that raised a record 3 million dollars for aid programs for the Latino community in the United States and Puerto Rico.
Cabello received recognition for his success as a musician and his work in the Latino community, the organization said.
Cabello, in association with Movement Voter Fund, launched the Healing Justice project last year to provide wellness and mental health resources to youth.
