Cyndi Lauper and the True Colors Tour
Cyndi Lauper’s True Colors Tour kicks off in June, embarking on a multi-city tour around the country. She will be joined by Debbie Harry, Erasure, The Dresden Dolls and Margaret Cho and more, all in support of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender equality.
And look — Cyndi gave a shout out to Blenders…
The tour will star on June 8th in Las Vegas, NV at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Other cities that will host True Colors include, Salt Lake City, Denver, Chicago, Atlantic City, Boston, DC, New York, Toronto, Atlanta, Houston, San Diego, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. Ah, no luck for NC — the closest venue will be Atlanta for me…
You can learn more at HRC’s web site. Other partners of the concert series are LOGO, The Matthew Shepard Foundation and PFLAG. HRC will receive $1 from each ticket sold throughout the tour.
Needless to say, Porno Pete was incensed by the announcement of the tour (bwahahahahahaha):
HRC’s tour is in support of “gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender equality,” according to its website. NBC’s Today show launched the True Colors tour, which is no surprise of Peter LaBarbera, whose organization monitors homosexual culture.
He says the pattern of the media recruiting celebrities to promote social causes is a familiar tactic, as they often grandstand and recruit well for the cause, though their own lifestyle may be disastrous.
“We have Brad Pitt and other Hollywood stars saying they won’t get married until homosexuals are allowed to get married,” LeBarbera observes. “You know, if we were to follow the way the celebrities would take us in this country, we’d be in a pretty bad lot.”
LaBarbera admits, though, that the steady “drip-drip” of the media and celebrity advocacy has had a convincing effect on the last few generations. But he says pro-family advocates and conservatives hope people will wary of having it pushed at them continually, and begin to reject some of the pro-homosexual propaganda.
