Pittsburgh Pride in the Street headliner is Chaka Khan!

The Delta Foundation of Pittsburgh is pleased to announce our 2014 Pride in the Street headliner is the “Queen of Funk” Chaka Khan!

From the moment she burst onto the music scene in the 1970s as the 18-year-old lead singer of the multiracial band Rufus, Chaka Khan’s powerful voice and show-stopping stage presence set her apart from any other singer. During her 40-year career, Chaka has developed a vast international fan base and has performed on six continents. A singer, songwriter, producer, author, actor, philanthropist, entrepreneur and activist, she has become an international music icon who has influenced generations of artists.

Pittsburgh Pride 2013

June 7th-16th is Pittsburgh’s GLBTQ++++++ Pride!

Pride in the Street

Don’t miss the Pride in the Street event on Saturday June 15th because that’s when Adam Lambert will be there! Sounds like a hot time. He’s gonna be blowing his lungs out for a 90 minute long show. Only downside is that it’s $35 but on the good side is it’s only $35!! Totally worth it to see a Grammy® nominee.

Now if Adam doesn’t get the blood flowing hard then check out Joe McElderry. He’s such a handsome guy and some of you may remember him from the 6th season of the X Factor. Yeah I’d totally like to get some x factoring on with him 😉

The list for this event goes on and on. The Delta Foundation of Pittsburgh has really out done themselves for this years line-up! Check out the official press release here, http://www.pittsburghpride.org/events/pride-in-the-streets/.

Pride March

So which sports organizations are going to be there? Softball? Bowling? FrontRunners? 5801 Darts? Volleyball? Well I don’t know but when you see them marching down that yellow brick road be sure to get some fierce yells out for those Queens and Queens..err Kings?

Have a blast this Pride and remember to look over all of the events at the official Pittsburgh Pride website.
