Kesha, the bisexual "Tik Tok" singer, will be headlining San Diego Pride July 16.
In a statement, Kesha said she was "beyond excited" to perform at San Diego Pride. "We have come a long way with the equal rights movement, but we have so much more work to do."
Kesha made reference to an anti-LGBT counseling bill that her home state of Tennessee is considering:
"In my home state of Tennessee they recently passed anti-LGBT legislation -- it's another reminder that groups like Pride are so important, and I'm honored to be part of San Diego Prides event on July 16. I'll never stop fighting for people who just want to be able to express themselves freely for who they are." Legislators have approved the bill, but it awaits Gov. Bill Haslam's signature -- or veto.
San Diego Pride's Music Festival will take place July 16-17 in Balboa Park. It will include 96 acts on the main stage, Latin stage, hip-hop stage, and an '80s/'90s stage.
Kesha will also headline Pittsburgh Pride June 11.
Kesha is currently in the process of trying to break her recording contract with Sony Records. She is appealing a court decision that ruled she couldn't break her contract and must continue to work with her producer, Dr. Luke, who she says sexually abused her since she was 18.
