Osvaldo Supino will join previously announced acts including Heather SmallBlonde Electra, Mickey Taylor and The Brazen.

The multi-talented Italian pop music star Osvaldo has been added to the bill at Leeds LGBT Pride (Main Event) in August 2017.

Yorkshire favourites Paul Stone and Lucy Whittaker will also join him as the event returns this August.

Osvaldo Supino is one of the most talked about Italian artists of his generation, he’s also one of the few Italians more recognised outside his Country.

In the last three years, this multi-talented pop star performed all around the world, conquered the attention of the most important media outlets and gained thousands and thousands of fans in the globe. NBC to Vanity Fair, from Univision to GQ, Osvaldo Supino is making headlines for his internationally fresh sound that he has developed alongside big names like Tempo Stokes (producer of Jennifer Lopez, Nelly Furtado), Charlie Mason (Miley Cyrus, Conchita), and Ferras (Katy Perry, Adam Lambert).

He has three albums, one EP and eight singles in the top 10 chart of iTunes, Osvaldo holds the record as the first Italian artist ever nominated three times at BT Digital Music Awards in the UK – out-ranking Kylie Minogue with more than 42.000 votes from worldwide.

Supino is a Pop bombshell who is still the early days of his impressive career, he has won several music awards in Italy and internationally: one Laiffa Los Angeles Awards, two Pivi Awards, two Nickeclip My Generation Awards, one WWW Sole24 Ore Award and one Unicef Award. In 2013 he became the first Italian male artist included in the PopTronik Compilation with the best of pop electro music worldwide.

Heavily involved in human rights and LGBT initiatives, Osvaldo in 2012 became the first Italian artist in history to perform at World Pride in London. In 2016 became the (as yet) only Italian male to perform in Miami for Miami Beach Pride (on the same stage Jordin Sparks and Iggy Azalea) in front of more than 150.000 people.

The last album “Resolution” has been released in English and for the first time in Spanish and includes collaborations with Trey Vittoe (producer for Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato), Tempo Stokes (Nelly Furtado, Jennifer Lopez) and the Nashville Symphony Orchestra.

On his latest album he comments:

This album is my answer to the tragedy of Pulse in Orlando. We all need to find a resolution in this time

My music has been always the reflection of my experiences. I’m not afraid to be totally myself and take risks. It’s the most beautiful thing of the music: being yourself, finding your own truth and share it with millions of people.
