The True Colors Fund was co-founded by Cyndi Lauper to inspire and engage everyone, especially straight people, to become active participants in the advancement of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender equality and to raise awareness about and bring an end to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender youth homelessness.
Going under the hammer is the chance to meet Justin Bieber at his sold out concert at the Barclays Center on August 2, two VIP tickets and after party passes to Cyndi Lauper’s Home For The Holidays concert in NYC in December, the opportunity to meet Joan Rivers at her live show in NYC, A-Level tickets to a Taylor Swift concert, and the chance to meet David Copperfield.
“History has been made today and justice has prevailed,” Cyndi said following last month’s marriage equality rulings by the United States Supreme Court. "To all of you who have been waiting on the sidelines for years, for lifetimes, it’s a huge day. I am so, so happy for you.
“The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of loving and committed gay couples and the so-called Defense of Marriage Act has been ruled unconstitutional. Not only that, but California’s Proposition 8 was struck down, restoring marriage equality to the state of California.
“Both of these decisions not only impact the lives of gay couples, but of gay and transgender youth who struggle to find acceptance from their family and friends. Every step closer we get to equality ensures that these kids have the futures that they deserve and are entitled to.
“Thank you so much to the inspiring plaintiffs, attorneys, and everyone across the country who have worked so hard for so many years. Today, we celebrate. Tomorrow, we keep working for full equality for all and to bring the freedom to marry for gay couples to the 37 states that still remain.”
