Full lineup to be announced soon. Stay tuned!
I am astounded by the artists who continue to give of their time and talent each and every year... The concert plays such an important role in supporting the True Colors Fund’s work to ensure that no young person is homeless again because of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
Cyndi Lauper is excited to announce the 6th annual Cyndi Lauper & Friends: Home for the Holidays benefit concert on Saturday, December 3 at New York City's historic Beacon Theatre in support of the True Colors Fund's work to end homelessness among lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) youth. For the past five years, this concert has played to sold out audiences of over 2,800 each year and welcomed performers like P!nk, Sarah McLachlan, Josh Groban, Jason Mraz, 50 Cent, Boy George, Natalie Maines, Nelly Furtado, Natasha Bedingfield, Rosie O'Donnell, Adam Lambert, Norah Jones, Whoopi Goldberg, Susan Sarandon, Lou Reed, Alan Cumming, Wanda Sykes, and many more. Home for the Holidays has quickly become the signature event for Cyndi's True Colors Fund and provides a significant source of funding towards fulfilling the organization's mission.
A growing body of research shows that up to 40% of the 1.6 million youth who experience homelessness each year identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender. The most commonly cited reason for these young people leaving their homes is family rejection. The True Colors Fund is working hard to end to this epidemic by educating and engaging the public, advocating within government, working collaboratively with young people, facilitating leading research, and organizing communities to develop solutions for preventing and ending LGBT youth homelessness. Please join us this year for another incredible Home for the Holidays!
The Beacon Theatre is located at: 2124 Broadway (between West 74th and 75th Streets) New York, NY 10023 | 212.465.6225 | www.beacontheatre.com
100% of the net proceeds from Cyndi Lauper & Friends: Home for the Holidays will benefit the True Colors Fund's work to end homelessness among lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth.
