Today Cyndi Lauper and the True Colors Tour announced an exciting partnership with CenterLink and GLBT Community Centers around the country. The True Colors Tour is truecolors1.gifhitting the road this summer, spreading the message of GLBT equality and highlighting the important work of GLBT community centers along the way.

The tour will feature five hours of non-stop music and entertainment by headliners Cyndi Lauper, The B-52s, and exciting special guests including Rosie O'Donnell, Wanda Sykes, Indigo Girls, Tegan and Sara, Regina Spektor, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Joan Armatrading, Nona Hendryx, Deborah Cox, The Cliks and many more. Hosted by Carson Kressley, the tour will visit 24 cities across the United States and Canada from May 31st to July 5th.

Here in Washington DC, The True Colors Tour will perform at the historic DAR Constitution Hall. I'm really excited for the opportunity to spread the word about the great work of the The DC Center.

The True Colors Tour was conceived by Cyndi Lauper stemming from her desire to give back to the LGBT community for the love and support they have given her throughout her career. The True Colors Tour is a celebration of the basic values and freedoms that should be shared by all Americans regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity and expression. Attendees will experience these values through the music of both legendary icons and the newest and coolest acts this generation has to offer.

So, don't miss out on this opportunity to join in the celebration. Tickets for select cities will go on sale beginning March 15th and will be available at www.ticketmaster.com.

Jerame adores Cyndi Lauper.

But the only place in the MidWest is Chicago. I hate it how everything "gay" is coastal. At least Texas got some dates - but the cities have to be huge...

This is silly -- Cyndi Lauper will do anything for the semblance of a career...

Just to be a bit clearer, I was a big fan of Cyndi back when she was battling it out with Madonna on the charts and my sister and I always thought Cindy was the one who should make it... but since then (or maybe even then, I was too young to know), I think she panders to a gay audience just because otherwise, well, she doesn't really have an audience...
