LGBT Pride Month Spotlight: Cyndi Lauper

By | June 3, 2014

Cyndi Lauper’s music let her rise to fame, but today she may be more well known for her LGBT activism than for her songs.

Beloved by the LGBT community, Cyndi played pride concerts all through the 80s and 90s when it wasn’t as cool and trendy as it is today. Her countless equality efforts include the massive True Colors Tour benefiting the Human Rights Campaign, the Forty to None campaign that seeks to eliminate the staggering problem of homelessness among LGBT youths, and her Tony Award winning musical Kinky Boots, which addresses the acceptance of drag queens in society. She was even present at the White House when President Obama signed the Hate Crimes Prevention Act into law in 2009.

A true hero to the LGBT community, Cyndi Lauper is one of the most important and influential advocates for equality of the last 30 years.
