The Delta Foundation of Pittsburgh’s Sat., Nov. 3 event “Countdown 2 Vote" with headliner Kesha is now “Stronger Than Hate: A Concert with Kesha.”

In the aftermath of the shooting that took place on Saturday at the Tree of Life synagogue in Squirrel Hill, the foundation, along with Kesha and her management team, made the decision to change the name and donate proceeds to the Jewish Federation's Our Victims of Terror fund.

“We believe that now is the time to bring all of Pittsburgh's LGBT community, businesses, organizations, and our allies together as one and support our friends in the Jewish community,” said Christine Bryan, director of marketing and development of the Delta Foundation, in an email to Pittsburgh City Paper.

A nonprofit advocacy organization for the LGBT community, The Delta Foundation of Pittsburgh organizes the annual Pittsburgh Pride festival. Originally, the concert was meant to encourage people to get out and vote during the upcoming Nov. 6 midterm elections. Kesha was chosen because she is an advocate for the support of the LGBT community and is outspoken on issues like gun control.


Stronger Than Hate: A Concert with Kesha. 6 p.m. Sat., Nov. 3. Liberty Avenue between Ninth and 10th streets, Downtown. $59-139.


 The event will include full-service bars and numerous food options.
