For the second year, Cyndi Lauper is inviting a number of outstanding artists to the Beacon Theatre for her Cyndi Lauper & Friends: Home For the Holidays benefit concert. The show is scheduled for December 8.
The show will help raise awareness about lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth homelessness and support the True Colors Fund's Forty to None Project.
Lauper, co-founder of the fund, said "When I first learned that up to 40 percent of all homeless youth in this country identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender I was shocked and saddened. For far too long homeless youth have not received the attention, resources and funding necessary to bring an end to this epidemic. My hope is that through this inspiring evening of music and comedy we can raise awareness and much needed funds to help these young people through our newly launched Forty to None Project."
Joining her for the evening will be Sarah McLachlan, Whoppi Goldberg, Adam Lambert, Rosie O'Donnell, Roberta Flack, St. Vincent, Terri Nunn (Berlin), Emily West, Rita Coolidge, Alexis Krauss (Sleigh Bells), Hunter Valentine and Andy Cohen. Hosting will be Carson Kressley.
