Following its successful live telethon in 2020 which raised an incredible $1.3 million benefiting the LGBTQ community during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Los Angeles LGBT Center will produce a second edition of Love in Action on Saturday, August 14, from 7–9 p.m. PT.
The two-hour fundraising show, presented by The Ariadne Getty Foundation and Glamazon L.A. – Amazon’s LGBTQ+ Affinity Group, will air on television station KTLA 5 to sustain the Center’s vital programs and services impacted by the pandemic. Emmy Award-winning actress Jane Lynch and KTLA 5 news anchor Cher Calvin will return as telethon co-hosts.
The first A-list entertainers scheduled to appear and perform during this year’s signature event include the Grace and Frankie cast (Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Martin Sheen, and Sam Waterston), Manila Luzon, and Adam Lambert on behalf of the Feel Something Foundation.
“LGBTQ people have been disproportionally impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, and the work to build back amid the full reopening of California is just beginning. The dollars donated during our first telethon in September were put to use the very next day, and we are asking for your support again to help the most vulnerable people in our community,” said Center CEO Lorri L. Jean.
Presenting Sponsors are The Ariadne Getty Foundation and Glamazon L.A. – Amazon’s LGBTQ+ Affinity Group; Platinum Sponsors are Tito’s Handmade Vodka, U.S. Bank, and WarnerMedia; and the Official Airline Sponsor is American Airlines.
