San Diego Pride has announced that multiplatinum artist Kesha will be headlining at San Diego's Pride Music Festival.

Organizers said Kesha has used her international fame as a platform to educate others about the LGBT community.

Her 2010 anthem "We R Who We R" was a response to the wave of LGBT teen suicides hitting the media at the time.

“I am beyond excited to perform at San Diego Pride this year," said Kesha. "We have come a long way with the equal rights movement, but we have so much more work to do."

San Diego's Pride Music Festival will take place Saturday, July 16 and Sunday, July 17, 2016. Kesha will perform on Saturday.

The festival takes place in Balboa Park and will include 96 acts across a main stage, Latin stage, Hip Hop stage and an 80s and 90s stage.
