DETROIT (AP) – Andy Bell of Erasure and “Glee” actor Alex Newell are among the musical acts that will perform at this year’s gay pride festival in Detroit.

Equality Michigan on Wednesday revealed the entertainment lineup and other specifics related to the Motor City Pride event.

The two-day festival and parade is scheduled for June at Hart Plaza downtown.

Motor City Pride bills itself as Michigan’s largest gathering that celebrates the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community. It attracts thousands of visitors to Detroit each year.

The Detroit Free Press says the festival will feature performances on multiple stages and 140 vendors.

Bell is one-half of the famed alternative dance-pop duo, and Newell plays the character Unique on the Fox show.
