CHICAGO — Nick Jonas, the Vixen, LeAnn Rimes and others will perform during this weekend’s online Pride Fest.

The festival will be streamed 7-9 p.m. Saturday and Sunday online on Twitch. There will be music performances and other entertainment, activism and conversations.

Jonas was announced as a performer Wednesday. The singer and actor will perform Saturday, as will singer Rimes.
