LOS ANGELES, CA - Mother, philanthropist, feminist, talk show host, actor, published author and entrepreneur, Amber Rose has launched her 2nd Annual 'Amber Rose SlutWalk Festival' (www.amberroseslutwalk.com) to be held at Pershing Square, DTLA on October 1, 2016, hosted by Perez Hilton, Frenchie Davis and Joanne the Scammer, and sponsored by the Amber Rose Show, Flirt Cosmetics, Monami Entertainment, Fashion Nova, AIDS Healthcare Foundation, Beats by Dr. Dre, MeUndies, Real 92.3, MYX fusions Moscato & Sangria amongst several other generous contributors.
This season's Dancing with the Stars contestant, host of Loveline and face of Flirt Cosmetics, will be joined by A-lister celebrity friends, a star-studded live music lineup, celebrity DJs, and high-profile brands in order to bring maximum awareness to this year's Amber Rose SlutWalk and The Amber Rose Foundation, a non-profit organization created by Amber to support her core mission of women empowerment and fighting against other social injustice issues. The event page details the complete list of artists who are scheduled to perform at this year's festival.
The early bird ticket price to the event was originally set for $17, but now, with the unprecedented generosity of Flirt Cosmetics, the 2016 Amber Rose SlutWalk Festival event is free to all attendees.
"As you can see in the news every day, issues of social injustice like gender inequality, victim blaming, slut shaming and sick sexual abuse in homes, schools and corporation is a global epidemic that needs to be addressed. Last year, thousands came out to support people facing these problems every day. They joined me in saying loud and clear, this can no longer be tolerated," says Amber Rose.
In 2015, the inaugural Amber Rose SlutWalk Festival was supported by a long list of influential celebrities from Nicki Minaj, Ne-Yo, Matt McGorry to Nick Cannon and Perez Hilton. The movement became a top news story internationally, garnered over 60 million impressions and over 15,000 pre-registrants. This year's SlutWalk Festival will expand to include impactful sign making, special guest speakers, free breast cancer screening, a share your story and a no judgment zone booth, voter registration, HIV testing, food trucks, a fashion show and education opportunities. The success of last years' grassroots art competition has led to the installation of a full art gallery after receiving more than 600 submissions from all over the country.
