A devoted advocate for the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) community for over 25 years, Cyndi Lauper launched the annual True Colors Tour in 2007. In partnership with organizations like the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) and Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG), this North American tour brings people together to voice their solidarity for GLBT equality and raise awareness about the continued discrimination the community still faces. From Cyndi and her openly gay sister, Elen, taking part in a highly successful national public awareness campaign for PFLAG to participating in countless events to raise funds and awareness for the fight for GLBT equality, Cyndi is committed to this vital community that has loved and supported her throughout her career. In appreciation for her work, Cyndi has been honored by many organizations including HRC, PFLAG, and the Matthew Shepard Foundation.

ive always thought cyndi lauper is really under-rated. she typecast herself as an mtv nutbar 25 years ago with enormously successful 'novelty' hits (which have actually stood the test of time, thank you very much) and it took a while to shake that general reputation (unlike 'slutty' madonna who butterflied in only a few years).

her songs are well crafted. and she has a great voice - sometimes squeeky, but more often very soulful. it's nice that she's now recognized as an authentic artist.

and the B-Fifty-Fucking-Two's!! very cool line-up!!
