Cyndi Lauper’s third annual Home for the Holidays concert, a benefit to help raise awareness about LGBT youth homelessness and support the True Colors Fund's Forty to None Project, took place Saturday at the Beacon Theatre in New York. "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," Lauper, cofounder of the True Colors Fund, said in a press release. "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."

Hosted by Carson Kressley, the concert once again played to a sold-out audience and featured a long list of celebrity performers, including Pink, Josh Groban, Susan Sarandon, Nelly Furtado, the Indigo Girls, Matt Nathanson, Ingrid Michaelson, Big Freedia, and Rosie O’Donnell.
