“Donatella and I have been dear friends for a lifetime,” Cher told the media. “It just felt right for our very first collaboration to be one about LGBTQ Pride and celebrating a community that means so incredibly much to both of us.”

Cher has been a powerful voice in the LGBTQIA+ community for decades. She’s known as an icon to many gay men and is celebrated by members of the community.

“One day, I came home, and there were these two men in my living room with my mom and my aunt. They were doing their hair and talking, and I was thinking, ‘Why haven’t we ever had these kind of guys around? Because these guys are the coolest,” Cher recalls.

“That was my (introduction to) the gay world,” the actress added. “Gay people don’t feel like they fit in, and I never felt like I fit in.”

The earnings from this project will go to a charity that supports and protects gender-nonconforming children and teenagers.
