blink-182’s Mark Hoppus Is Auctioning Off One Of His Bass Guitars For An LGBTQ Charity

blink-182 bassist Mark Hoppus and All Time Low are doing their bits in standing up for the LGBTQ community.

Ever the good guy, blink-182 bassist Mark Hoppus is auctioning off one of his beloved instruments (named Groundskeeper Willie, FYI) and donating the proceeds to The Trevor Project.

The pop-punk legend is showing tremendous support towards the LGBTQ community after he learned of plans for a ‘Straight Pride’ event in Boston, America, tweeting: “To celebrate how utterly ridiculous a Straight Pride parade is, I’m going to auction off one of my basses, match the final bid dollar-for-dollar, and donate all the money to the Trevor Project.” Very well said indeed.

Mark also unveiled a couple of photos of the awesome-looking bass, showing that not only will you be doing something great for charity, but you’ll get a unique instrument out of it.

Fellow lovely chaps All Time Low are also getting in on the action, celebrating Pride Month by unveiling some ace new merch – again, with all proceeds benefitting The Trevor Project.

Shoutout to bands doing lovely things.

Catch Mark Hoppus (hopefully with a replacement bass) live a whole bunch in the U.S. this year, as blink get set to celebrate the anniversary of Enema Of The State in a lot of places…
