This star-studded show will raise money for the Equality Florida Pulse Victims Fund.

The world was devastated on Saturday 11 June by the news of the mass shooting at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida. 49 died while much more were physically and emotionally injured by the tragedy.

People from around the globe have come together to show support for the Orlando LGBTQI community through strength in numbers and fundraising efforts.

In Sydney on Monday 11 July, an array of Australia’s top artists will come together to create a dazzling evening of entertainment. The line-up will include Magda Szubanski, Beccy Cole, Libby O’Donovan, Shauna Jenson, iOTA, Emma Matthews, DJ Sveta and Virginia Gay, along with many others.

This will be a concert of love songs, expressing strength and solidarity with the community in Orlando.

Funds raised from the concert will go to the Equality Florida Pulse Victims Fund. Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore said, “We’ve thrown open the doors of Sydney Town Hall to raise much-needed funds for those directly impacted by this horrendous shooting. Many of the city’s top performers are donating their time, talent and energy. It’s time for Sydney to come out in support of Orlando’s LGBTIQ community.”

Equality Florida is collecting contributions to support every single victim of the horrific shooting. This includes victims’ families, survivors, and those in the club who may not have suffered a physical injury but are in need of support. The group is working with the National Center for Victims of Crime to distribute the contributions through their National Compassion Fund. So far in excess of USD$6 million has been raised.

Tickets to the Sydney show will be available from 9 am on Thursday 30 June.
