The gay icon will perform at an LGBT-targeted fundraiser for Hillary Clinton next month at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City. LGBT for Hillary will benefit the Hillary Victory Fund – a joint fundraising committee consisting of Hillary for America, the Democratic National Committee, and 33 state parties. The invitation, which features a rainbow H logo, says dinner tickets start at $1,200 (£920) and go up to $250,000 (£191,105).
Streisand has been supporting Hillary Clinton’s policy for a long time already, writing an essay criticizing sexism directed at Clinton and defending her against people critical of her speeches in front of Wall Street bankers and hedge fund managers. On the opening night of her nine-city tour, she brought along magician and mentalist Lior Suchard and used the opportunity to make a quick comment about Trump: “The only person whose mind he can’t read is Donald Trump’s because he doesn’t have one.” She continued, “He’s putting his foot in his mouth every day now, so I’m happy.”
