Cher to host Hillary Clinton LGBT fundraiser on Miami Beach


Cher will host an LGBT fundraiser for Hillary Clinton in Miami Beach Aug. 19.

Clinton is not expected to attend the event which has a minimum donation of $250.

"I think Cher is a universal gay icon," said Tony Lima, executive director of the gay rights group SAVE Dade. "She is loved by many generations of LGBT folks. She is a strong woman and very in tune with the mantra of the gay community and being an individual and having a loud voice and being strong."

Cher's son Chaz Bono is transgender.

Clinton is a supporter of gay rights and announced her support for same-sex marriage in 2013 two years before she launched her current bid for president.

Politico reported about the Cher fundraiser earlier today.
