Gay icon Cher is set to headline a virtual LGBT+ fundraiser for Joe Biden
The eternal gay icon Cher is rallying the LGBT+ community to support Joe Biden in a virtual fundraiser for his presidential campaign.
The Goddess of Pop is set to headline the online event on August 31, where she will be joined by former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg. Also scheduled to take part in the virtual event are senator Tammy Baldwin and rep. David Cicilline.
According to Deadline, tickets for the event start at $1,000 per person and rise to a whopping $100,000, either for donating or raising that amount. Donors of $50,000 and above will get to participate in a “virtual clutch.”
Cher first endorsed Joe Biden for president back in February, and she reiterated her support for him after his DNC acceptance speech on Thursday.
Tweeting in her characteristic all-caps, she declared: “AM PROUD JOE BIDEN SUPPORTER. LOVE, RESPECT,& BELIEVE IN JOE. I WILL NEVER STOP BELIEVING IN JOE,& I’M NO STARRY EYED GIRL. I’VE SEEN IT ALL & JOE IS MY PRESIDENT JOE WILL HELP WORKING FAMILIES.
“WE HAVE A MILLION SHATTERED DREAMS.. I TRUST JOE 2 PUT THEM BACK TOGETHER AGAIN.”

Cher is an outspoken critic of Trump, and over the past four years has devoted much of her energy to regularly dragging the president on Twitter, much to her fans’ delight.
She’s one of several entertainment figures lined up for Biden fundraisers over the next few weeks. Cyndi Lauper is on the bill for another virtual LGBT+ event on September 14, along with Pete Buttigieg and Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot. Tickets will start at $100 per person.
