Cher will host two fundraisers later this month for Hillary Clinton.

According to Politico, Cher will hold an LGBT fundraiser on Friday, August 19 in Miami Beach. The following day, Cher will appear at a fundraiser in Fire Island Pines, New York, a summer travel destination for the LGBT community.

Tony Lima, a co-host of the event taking place in Miami, told Politico that the fundraisers show "who is a friend of our community and who isn't," a reference to Donald Trump, who appeared this week at an event in Orlando alongside numerous opponents of LGBT rights.

"If you look at the community as a whole, Cher has been an icon in the gay community since the 60s," Lima added.

On Sunday, August 21, Cher will join Clinton at a fundraiser in Provincetown, Massachusetts.
