Selena Gomez is planning on donating proceeds from her Revival Tour stop in North Carolina next Tuesday (June 7) to a local LGBT organization after an anti-LGBTQ law was passed last month.
Even though some performers cancelled their shows, the 23-year-old will still take the stage and released a statement to explain her decision.
“I am very fortunate to have grown up in a home where I learned from an early age that everyone should be treated equally. I went back and forth on whether I should cancel my concert in North Carolina and ultimately I think what is right for me is to move forward with my show and donate a portion of the proceeds to Equality North Carolina and their effort to defeat this act of discrimination,” she said.
Selena added, “I’ve been reassured the venue I will be performing in has gender neutral bathrooms as I want everyone coming to my show to be welcomed. I feel like my generation is the most progressive one yet and believe there will be a day soon when laws like HB2 won’t even be a consideration.”
