Crank up the volume as Attitude Pride at Home, in association with Klarna, presents a star-studded music extravaganza not to be missed.

Our digital celebration of love and diversity – all the finger snaps, please – kicks off proper with the Opening Party, in partnership with Klarna, on Wednesday 23 June from 7.30pm BST on YouTube.com/AttitudeMag.

Guaranteed to get you in the mood is chart-topper and former Attitude Breakthrough Award winner Ava Max, who wows with a double whammy of her hits ‘My Head & My Heart’ and ‘Kings & Queens.’

Queer pop princess L Devine, meanwhile, reigns supreme with a performance of her empowering single ‘Girls Like Sex’, which is just, well, divine.

Joining them on the line-up is RuPaul’s Drag Race UK favourite Tia Kofi, who proves she can slay it in the recording studio with bona fide bop ‘Outside In.’

No strangers to starting the party, Sink the Pink put the needle on it with DJ sets by Jonbenet Blonde and TeTe Bang.

Sweden’s king of pop Darin – who came out as gay publicly last year – also swings by, leaving us swooning for more with his latest offering, ‘Can’t Stay Away’.

The belter on our bill is musical theatre stalwart Marisha Wallace, bringing the house down with a two-song set that includes ‘I Know Where I’ve Been’ from Hairspray.

Speaking of hair, Ibiza-born Au/Ra is hard to miss with her green locks – and her acoustic version of ‘Panic Room’ is to (groan) dye for.

If you're looking for, ahem, strum-thing special, you won't be disappointed by country sensation Brooke Eden and her catchy ditty, ‘Got No Choice.’

Buzzed-about wunderkid Madeline The Person shows how scarily talented they are as well with the heartfelt ‘Haunted.'

Our new music crush Allison Ponthier strikes a chord, too, with her tender tune 'Harshest Critic' (we predict big things).

Never less than rousing, the London Gay Men’s Chorus pull out all the stops with an uplifting rendition of ‘Marry for Love’ from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cinderella, recorded at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane. All that's left to say is... encore!

Find Attitude Pride at Home’s Opening Party, in partnership with Klarna, on YouTube via whichever screen or device you can lay hands and start a party wherever you are on Wednesday 23 June from 7.30pm BST on YouTube.com/AttitudeMag.
