History and Impact of Can’t Cancel Pride

The event is supported by P&G brands including Bounty®, Cascade®, Charmin®, Dawn®, Downy®, Febreze®, Gillette® Venus, Olay Body, Pantene®, Swiffer®, and Tide®.

Fans can follow along on social media using the hashtag #CantCancelPride and support participating nonprofits by visiting cantcancelpride.com. Additional partners include OLAY® and Vicks, with more to be announced.

The executive producers for Can’t Cancel Pride 2024 are John Sykes, Tom Poleman, Bart Peters, and Gayle Troberman of iHeartMedia; Brent Miller of P&G; and David Collins, Rob Eric, Renata Lombardo, and Larissa A.K. Matsson of Scout Productions.
