Special Appearances By:
Cyndi Lauper is excited to announce the 3rd Annual Cyndi Lauper & Friends: Home for the Holidays, a star-studded benefit concert on Saturday, December 7th at New York City's historic Beacon Theatre to help raise awareness about lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth homelessness and support the True Colors Fund's Forty to None Project.
For the past two year, the concert has played to sold out audiences of over 2,800 each year and welcomed incredible performers like Sarah McLachlan, Jason Mraz, Norah Jones, Adam Lambert, Whoopi Goldberg, Lou Reed, Wanda Sykes, Cassandra Wilson, Alan Cumming, Jon Secada, and many more. Due to the tremendous success over the past two years, Home for the Holidays has quickly become the signature event for the True Colors Fund and provides a significant source of funding towards fulfilling the organization's mission.
"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," remarked Lauper, co-founder of the True Colors Fund. "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 Forty to None Project."
A growing body of research shows that up to 40% of the 1.6 million youth who are homeless each year identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender. The most commonly cited reason for these young people leaving their homes is family rejection. The Forty to None Project is hard at work to bring an end to this epidemic by educating and engaging the public, advocating within government and media, creating empowering experiences for these young people, facilitating leading research, and aiding service providers in building their capacity and creating an inclusive environment with their agencies. Learn more about the Forty to None Project and how you can get involved at www.fortytonone.org.
Please join us this year for what will no doubt be 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
