Pride in the Park wraps-up Pride month, June 26 and 27, in Grant Park

Betty Who, the 29-year-old Australia-born, Michigan-bred pop star, has long been an ally to the LGBTQ community, having performed Pride festivals around the country and lent her voice to fundraising efforts by the Trevor Project and GLAAD.

"I have been in relationships with both men and women," Who wrote on Instagram in 2018. "I have been deeply, earth-shatteringly in love with both men and women. Just because I happen to be engaged to a man doesn't mean that I haven't found a home within the gay community."

In 2013, Who's infectious single "Somebody Loves You" was used in a viral same-sex marriage proposal video at a Salt Lake City Home Depot. The song hit the top of Billboard's Dance/Club chart and has since become a gay wedding staple. And recently, Netflix asked Who to remix "All Things," the theme song to the second season of Queer Eye.

Standing 6'2", Who has never been a traditional pop star and she credits the LGTBQ community with kickstarting her career, which began with the RCA Records releases The Movement and The Valley, and got its own reboot with the independent EP Betty.
