“Many people in my life have benefited from the services provided by the Los Angeles LGBT Center and, after seeing the work they do firsthand with LGBT youth and seniors, I knew this would be an organization I’d be supporting for years to come,” Grande said in a statement. “In Rainbowthon, expect to smile, laugh, and have a good time while also highlighting the incredible work the Center has done for the community during these crazy times!”
