Jonas has been a high profile supporter of GLBT rights and Pittsburg Pride will not be the first GLBT event the singer has headlined, he earlier this year performed at the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras party.
According to E! Online, he said: “When I heard about the difficult position Pittsburgh Pride was in just days before their event, I knew I had to find a way to help. I’m excited to do what I can to support the LGBT community in Pittsburgh, and I look forward to seeing you this Saturday as we celebrate together.”
