Pop singer Kim Petras just made a show-stopping surprise guest appearance at LA Pride, joining Christina Aguilera on stage to perform “XXX” from her recent sex-positive EP Slut Pop. She also delivered an incredible Coachella set, teasing the crowd with unreleased songs from her forthcoming debut full-length studio album…so there’s no doubt her headlining Pride set will be something special.

Vance: “Pride in New York City is unlike any event in the world. The gay rights movement began here with Stonewall, so there’s a lot of rich history in the streets of this city for gay people. It’s a fantastic, rare thing in Manhattan to see crowds of people taking over city avenues and sidewalks — just enjoying one big celebration of life.”
