Pop icon Cyndi Lauper just announced that her 10th annual “Home for the Holidays” benefit concert will go virtual this year with a premier on Tik Tok Friday, December 11. 100% of the proceeds go toward True Colors United, an organization co-founded by Lauper which combats LGBTQ+ youth homelessness.
The concert will feature an all-star line-up that includes Brandi Carlile, Judy Gold, Bette Midler, Brittany Howard, Billy Porter, Dolly Parton, Cher, Taylor Swift, Phoebe Bridgers, Billie Eilish, Whoopi Goldberg, and many more LGBTQ+ artists and allies.
“It’s been a crazy year, but I am grateful for so many things – my immensely talented and generous friends who keep showing up for us year after year; the technology that is going to make it possible to bring our virtual concert to more people than ever; and all of our partners who help True Colors United do the work that we do,” Lauper said in a press release. “The Home for the Holidays concert is 10 years and over 100 artists in, and has raised over three million dollars, which is beyond what I could have imagined when we began. Most importantly though, we are truly helping LGBTQ young people experiencing homelessness. And to all of the fans who watch, donate, and celebrate with us, you are family. And I thank you.”
The concert premiers on Lauper’s Tik Tok this Friday at 8 pm EST, and will stream Sunday, December 13 on Lauper’s YouTube and Facebook channels at 8 pm EST. Lauper will appear during all livestreams to chat with fans.
While the event is free, participants will be encouraged to donate through stickers and donation buttons on all social media outlets. They can also donate through Text-to-Give by texting TrueColors to 24365, and on the True Colors United website.
