You won’t believe the talent at Cyndi Lauper’s Home for the Holidays Concert this year


Cyndi Lauper hits the stage at the 7th annual Cyndi Lauper & Friends: Home for the Holidays benefit concert–presented by AT&T–Saturday, December 9.

Former Queer Eye gay Carson Kressley will host the show at New York City’s historic Beacon Theatre. The concert benefits the True Colors Fund’s work to end homelessness among LGBTQ youth.

Co-founded by Lauper herself, the True Colors Fund works nationally to end homelessness among LGBTQ youth using a combination of advocacy and education to build a world in which everyone can be their true selves. The net proceeds from the concert will support the True Colors Fund’s programs.

Check out a partial list of this year’s incredible line up of performers promising to make the yuletide gay…
