On Wednesday (May 15), iHeartMedia and P&G announced the lineup for their fifth annual Can’t Cancel Pride event. Taking place on June 12, the livestreamed event will feature a series of appearances and performances from stars including Porter, Peck, Allison Russell, Ben Platt, David Archuletta, Meghan Trainor, Melissa Etheridge, Raye and Victoria Monét.

Along with performing at the event, Porter is set to host and receive the Elton John Impact Award for his LGBTQ+ advocacy throughout his career. The award was first given to John during the event’s 2022 broadcast, and was later presented to Americana star Brandi Carlile in 2023.

In a statement released with the news, iHeartMedia’ spokesperson ‘s chief marketing officer Gayle Troberman teased a can’t-miss event. “We are proud to celebrate Can’t Cancel Pride’s fifth birthday with another fantastic show that celebrates the intersection and unconditional power of music, message and inclusivity,” she wrote. “It’s incredible to see and hear the positive impact this franchise has on the community each year.”

Peck’s performance at the event will come on the heels of his recent win at the 2024 GLAAD Media Awards, where the country star took home the organization’s Vito Russo Award. During his acceptance speech on Saturday (May 11), Peck pointed to the importance of having more out queer artists in the genre, in order “to allow some kid in a small town who loves country music to see themselves in me or Mickey Guyton or T.J. Osborne.”

Can’t Cancel Pride will take place live at the iHeartRadio Theater in Los Angeles on June 12 at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET, with a livestream of the event that will take place on iHeartRadio’s YouTube and Facebook pages, Hulu, Revry, and The Advocate Channel.
