Platten, and Grammy-nominated artist Mary Lambert are also slated to perform at the event, which is set to air on Logo and VH1, on Saturday, June 25 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
During the show, Macklemore will introduce members of Out Leadership as well as Charlotte, North Carolina mayor Jennifer Roberts, who has been an LGBTQ advocate amid the state's passing of the controversial anti-gay HB2 law.
