Singer and actress Deborah Cox has been named national ambassador of the Green with Pride Initiative, which is set to launch at L.A. Pride on June 13 and 14.
According to organizers, Green With Pride was created to show the LGBT community that going green is “easy, smart and stylish”
Deborah Cox is a global Pride festival favorite whose number one dance hits include “Nobodys Supposed to be Here,” “House is Not a Home” and her current hit — which marks her 10th time at number one — “Beautiful U R” from her latest CD “The Promise”. She has been a supporter of the LGBT community for years. She says she has been a believer when it comes to green issues and doing your part to help the environment.
“Green With Pride (presented by Clear2Go) is designed as a fun, accessible and €˜edutaining experience that will feature sustainable products, services and easy-to-use green tips over the 2-day festival,” organizers told The Green Dove.
Prior to her performance on the main Stage, L.A. PRIDE attendees will get an exclusive chance to meet the performer during an autograph session in the “Green With Pride presented by Clear2Go” area on Saturday, June 13, from 5-6 p.m.
“Thankfully I have a job that I absolutely love and a family that I am so blessed with but that means everything I do has to be efficient and I have to feel really good about it,” said Cox. “I literally was just having the light bulbs changed and replaced with energy-efficient ones throughout my home when I got the call from the guys at “Green With Pride.”
“I was so excited about the initiative, and the fact that it was launching in L.A. where Ill be performing, made everything a natural fit. I love that the area is designed in a way that informs me and I dont have to turn my world upside down to make an impact on our planet; even one small change collectively makes a huge difference.”
After its LA debut, “Green With Pride presented by Clear2Go” will continue to paint the community green as it heads to San Diego Pride on July 18-19.
