Brazilian pop singer and activist Yann just announced his new single and video “Igual.” The project will be released on November 8 and will raise awareness for the epidemic of anti-gay violence happening in Brazil.
The music video will feature over 25 artists, including Céline Dion and Demi Lovato. More artists will be revealed soon.
This project is more necessary than ever before, as Brazil’s the country with the highest LGBTQ+ murder rate in the world and there are no laws criminalizing hate crimes against LGBTQ+ people in Brazil.
“Igual” was composed by Yann and is the theme song for Rio Pride 2017. All proceeds from the single’s sales and streaming will go towards assisting Brazil’s LGBTQ+ community by being donated to the NGO Grupo Arco-Íris.
