Cher To Host Series Of LGBT Fundraisers For Hillary Clinton In Miami Beach, Fire Island, And Provincetown

Politico reports:

Cher is headlining a Miami Beach fundraiser for Hillary Clinton next week, marking the second LGBT-related event the star is holding for the Democrat.

As invitations to the Aug. 19 fundraiser begin hitting email boxes on Thursday, Republican Donald Trump will be meeting in Orlando with a group of conservative Christian pastors who have criticized the gay rights movement.

For Clinton’s backers, the contrast between Cher’s fundraiser and Trump’s private meeting with the 700 religious leaders of the American Renewal Project provides the perfect opportunity to question Trump’s commitment to gay rights after he promised to respect the “the LGBTQ community” at the Republican National Convention last month.

“This shows who is a friend of our community and who isn’t,” said Tony Lima, a co-host of the Cher fundraiser and executive director of the Miami gay rights group Safeguarding American Values for Everyone. Gay rights activists Bradley Carlson and Joe Falk are also listed as event co-hosts.

The Fire Island event is Saturday, August 20th. Tickets start at $250 and those contributing at and above the $1000 level get a photo op with Cher. The next day Cher’s fundraising tour moves to Provincetown.hillaryFIP

    Scott Biao will mow your lawn for 50 bucks and give the proceeds to Trump .

    • barrixines

      Throw in another twenty and you get Clint Eastwood to shout at the lawnchairs to get off said lawn.

      • lymis

        I might pay $20 to see that.

    • Larry in Oklahoma

      Hey, that’s a career move upwards for him.

    • Robincho

      And on those three days, Junior Sabato is donating his salary from the front line at Del Taco…

  • Joe in PA

    Hmmm, a private meeting with 700 religious leaders…oh please, oh please let there be a gay waiter with a cell phone cam. Ala 47%.

    • medaka

      And Grindr screencaps!

    • Michael Rush

      Yeah private sounds sneaky , get in there kids !

    • lymis

      I put nothing beneath him at this point.

      He’s gone more or less silent on the “deport all Muslims” thing recently. Maybe he’ll dust that one off and double down on it.

    • Kruhn

      I move for an emergency meeting of the Gay Council. We need to activate Section Fab and get someone in that meeting!

      What a world, what a world!

    • JT

      Is that egg on his face?

    • Michael Rush

      I feel kind of lucky that he didn’t pull of a phony ” more presidential ” personality , that would have been creepy .

      • lymis

        Given his current personality, the idea that he might have a creepier one is in itself creepy.

    • Cuberly

      Melting nazi….sounds about right.

      • TuuxKabin

        Total failure, just look at it.

      • Todd20036

        Should have scrolled down. Ack!

        • TuuxKabin

          Wha’ for? Your comment is spot on as well.

    • Todd20036

      Time isn’t that liberal a magazine these days, so this is pretty big.

      • TuuxKabin

        Wondering if it’s a meme or for realz. Will look at the news stand when I go out.

        • Jeffrey

          Its right there

          • TuuxKabin

            Holy moly. Thanks!

        • It’s for realz…the reporter was on Morning Joe today.

          • TuuxKabin

            Yeah, Jeffrey provided the link to the site. Just returned from morning errands and only TIME’s Olympics issue is out. We don’t have TV, nothing either of us miss or ever used much, but sometimes . . . Thanks for confirming! TIME is a loser magazine, correct? Little readership, pathetic publication. Sad . . .

    • lymis

      Who put Malibu Ken in the microwave?

      • Dagoril

        He walked into it himself. Poor thing thought it was a tanning bed.

  • geoffalnutt

    I’ve heard that Scott Biao is involved with NAMBLA, also. Recruitment? Could be. I don’t know. It makes sense, though. These are rough times. Very Sad.

    • TampaDink

      SOMETHING is going ON! Believe me!

      • Joe in PA

        I have to be honest with you.

        • TampaDink

          BELIEVE me.

          • bzrd

            just sayin

            shrugs shoulders

      • Cuberly

        Yep, some have said…

      • Craig Howell

        Many People Have Said.

    • Frostbite

      I just read on the internet “Scott Biao is involved with NAMBLA” Obviously it must be true!

      • Ray Taylor

        We already knew that.

  • WebSlinger
    • JCF

      The “Today” panel needs to have him groping Ivanka.

  • billbear1961
  • Ninja0980

    Trump and Rubio are having a private meeting eh?
    Maybe because they know if it was public, all the fact BS about Trump being an ally would be ruined?

  • Frostbite

    “Trump promised…” LOLOLOL. Who fell for that one?

  • Skokieguy [Larry]

    Hey Bette, we’ve got Cher, Babbs, you’re next! The seriousness of the consequences of this election call for invoking the holy trinity.

    • How about Patti and a little eye candy with John Barrowman!

      • Skokieguy [Larry]

        And Nyles from Dancing with the starts shirtless, signing the lyrics.
        And Betty White – because Betty White.

        However we should use caution, the heaven’s could implode.

        • I’d be okay with that. Going out in an explosion of glitter, rainbows, song and joy!

          • Skokieguy [Larry]

            And in the chaos of the explosion I am rushing the stage and grabbing Nyles to ‘save’ him. No time for pants.

        • Kruhn

          Oh yes, the Divine Betticia!

    • Kruhn

      Throw in St. Madonna and St. Gaga to add additional holy firepower.

  • ohbear1957

    Cher has a message for Trump supporters

  • Jay Silversmith

    Maybe the log cabin repubes could get Millie Vanalli to fundraise for them.

    • GayOldLady

      There’s no hope for them. They’re kicked to curb of the GOP, again.

      • TuuxKabin

        Lower energy those two, sad.

  • GayOldLady

    Is there any doubt about which party KNOWS us and understands how to reach out to us? I have no doubt that we’ll be seeing the Divine Ms.M very, very soon.

    • TuuxKabin

      And which party knows how to laugh, dance, sing, enjoy life for what it is and can be! I hope Bette joins in the fun, after all, she’s a hell of a girl, and a lotta fun. SHE LOOKS GOOD!

      • GayOldLady

        Absolutely love her!

        • TuuxKabin

          Another ‘Old Lady’ (she’s 71) who can make me smile, laugh, cry and snort, all in one song or another.

          Did you ever see her “Mondo Beyondo” HBO special? It’s on youtube.

          Needs Liza.

          “If this night were any gayer
          Then Liza would be mayor
          And Elton John take flight!”

          NPH (to tune of “Tonight” from WSS, first (?) time hosting Tony Awards.

    • Kruhn

      In the name of Cher, Babra, and the Divine Ms. M be upon us and remain with us always, Amen.

  • Craig Howell

    If Cher had scheduled her P’Town affair for the next weekend, I could have been with her. She’ll be so heart-broken when she finds out!

  • Jeffrey

    Could not get any gayer unless you were actually sucking a dick during it.

  • greenmanTN

    “Trump’s commitment to gay rights after he promised to respect the “the LGBTQ community” at the Republican National Convention last month.”

    How am I supposed to keep down breakfast after statements like that? I wouldn’t trust him any further than I could toss his latest trophy wife.

  • medaka

    Diva! Ruining another clungeflips orgasm!

    I met Cher when I was assisting at a VIP reception. Before she arrived, event producers and coordinators were ordering everyone involved to not speak to her, to stay away from her, ..and essentially, making asses of themselves as they lost all sense of decorum and professionalism. Cher arrived with a small entourage. She left them to mingle around…including spending time for small talk with “the help”…… and had this attitude of “oh get over yourselves” to the assholes treating everyone else like underlings. I’ll confess here that I have never really been a Cher fan, but she certainly won me over that night. I have worked with or around other entertainment legends who, like Cher, were not above treating others with respect and warmth. For being a legend in her own time, and knowing it, she certainly demonstrated a sense of the worth of others in this world. Real stars shine without having to diminish anyone else.

    I’m always amused with the LGBT community who, on one hand deride Clinton and Obama for coming late to the table to support our community and our rights, but thrill and faint over Cher who was WAY anti gay until she had to face the reality that her daughter was transgender. And even after she accepted the fact that Chastity turned into Chaz, she still had a hard time swallowing it. Eventually she “evolved” to become one of our biggest champions. Too bad so many in the LGBT community cannot rise above their own unevolved views about Clinton and Obama.

    • thepinkservbot

      Pretty much all of these people fawning over Cher and her amazing… charity… are all dyed-in-the-wool #ImWithHer Clinton supporters, so…

      That being said, fuck “evolved views.”
