We were approached again by the same woman who again told us we were disgusting,” AyG wrote, adding that they attempted to get the band’s attention.

“Security, please do not do that. This is a Pride event, and we should be able to be whoever we [want], do whatever we want,” Aly told the security guards. After cheers, she added, “That’s why we have to stick up for one another.”

“We have so many LGBTQ fans, and AJ and I have always been huge supporters of the community,” Aly said at the time.

“Aly and I really feel like this is the year of giving back, and we want to continue that movement. This year it’s all about the Trevor Project, and I think it can hopefully help bless a lot of our fans,” AJ added. “As much as we want our fans to come enjoy our music, it’s also hopefully a moment where we can give back to them.”

Representatives for Aly & AJ and the Alameda County Fairgrounds did not immediately respond to Yahoo Lifestyle’s requests for comment.
