Kygo donates money to support Africa’s LGBT movement
A handful of prolific figures in the dance music world feel compelled to use their star power for good, with artists such as Hardwell and Seth Troxler often participating in charitable efforts. Norwegian producer Kygo marks the latest talent to make a difference by supporting Africa’s LGBT community and movement.
In partnership with the Rafto Foundation, Kygo will be donating money to the organization, as well as their 2011 prize winner, Frank Mugisha, in support of his charitable efforts for LGBT rights in Uganda. A large amount of proceeds from Kygo’s forthcoming Cloud 9 show in Bergen on August 20 will be donated, in addition to funds from The Kennedy Foundation and Guggenheim Foundation. Over $50,000 in donations from Kygo’s efforts will help provide support, supplies, and homes for LGBT activists.
