Pop Star Kim Petras to Headline WorldPride’s Epic Concert

Author: JD Glass

German pop star Kim Petras, who broke a record with collaborator Sam Smith to become the first trans and non-binary artists, respectively, to hit number one on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, will headline Sydney’s WorldPride’s closing concert.

Sydney WorldPride runs from February 17 to March 5, and will feature an official opening ceremony, a human rights conference, and a First Nations Gathering.

The seven-hour Rainbow Republic closing concert, which will be hosted by G Flip and out Australian actor Keiynan Lonsdale, will pass the WorldPride baton to the next host city for 2025 — Washington, D.C.

“I’m so excited to be back in Sydney this year,” Petras says in a video posted on her own 

Petras made history in 2022 as the first trans woman to not only be in the Billboard top 10, but to be featured on a number one single — “Unholy” — which garnered Petras and Smith a Grammy Award nomination for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, and the banger hit top spots across the globe.
