Toronto-based singer, songwriter, LGBTQ artist Desiire performs his song “Closer” for the 9th episode of EscapeTracks‘ Live Sessions. This newest live session performance is a Pride Month special which aims to bring awareness to Pride Month, #BlackLivesMatter and #BlackTransLivesMatter.
Earlier this year, EscapeTracks released their first live session special with Mikhala Jené celebrating Women’s History Month. Pride Month is another occasion where the R&B platform has leveraged its’ audience to bring attention and awareness to current social and civil rights movements. 100% of all revenues generated from the episode will be donated and split equally between: SNAP 4 FREEDOM and Black Lives Matter.
SNAP 4 FREEDOM is an organization that builds on the power of black trans and queer communities to force systemic divestment from the prison industrial complex and invest in community support. A donation to the organization will help fund programs like a 16 week internship program to create effective leaders to end the crisis of mass criminalization.
Black Lives Matter forges critical connections and works in solidarity with black communities. A donation to the organization helps actively dismantle all forms of anti-black racism, liberate blackness, support black healing, affirm black existence and create freedom for black communities through systemic change at all government levels.
