Cyndi Lauper is about to let her true colors shine for LGBTQ nightlife workers.

The "Time After Time" singer is one of the headliners of the concert Stonewall Gives Back!, a fundraiser for the Stonewall Inn Gives Back Initiative supporting those in the industry impacted by the current health crisis.

Hosted by Michelle Visage and Tyler Oakley, the livestreamed happening will also feature Troye Sivan, Todrick Hall, Rufus Wainwright, Kim Petras, Allie X, Alan Cumming, Betty Who, Carlie Hanson, Darren Hayes, Dave Mizzoni, Greyson Chance, Issac Dunbar, John Cameron Mitchell, Kristin Chenoweth, Leland, Lorna Luft, Matt Rogers, MUNA, Nina West, Our Lady J, Pabllo Vittar, Peppermint, Shoshana Bean, Todrick Hall, Rucker, and Vincint.

"This industry is now gone, and employees of those bars, venues, and event spaces are struggling," said Stacy Lentz, CEO of the Stonewall Inn Gives Back Initiative. "They rely on tips and gig work and are no longer able to make ends meet. We need this moment to come together as one and help those who keep the LBGTQ nightlife industry thriving."

The benefit will be livestreamed April 23 at 8 p.m. Eastern on World of Wonder's YouTube channel WOWPresents. All proceeds will be directed into a fund from which LGBTQ+ nightlife workers can apply for emergency assistance. Donate to the Stonewall Inn Gives Back Initiative.
