"Stonewall Gives Back!" To Feature Cyndi Lauper, Troye Sivan, Kim Petras & More In Concert For The LGBTQ Nightlife Community
Cyndi Lauper, Troye Sivan, Kim Petras and many more are set to appear as part of "Stonewall Gives Back!," a livestream concert presented by World of Wonder to celebrate and support the LGBTQ+ community durning the pandemic.
Scheduled to stream Apr. 23 at 8pm ET, the one-night-only livestream event will also feature VINCENT, Todrick Hall, Rufus Wainwright, Allie X, MUNA, Betty Who, Greyson Chance and more. "Rupaul's Drag Race" judge Michelle Visage and Tyler Oakley will serve as hosts.
“The Stonewall Inn in New York City has, for decades, served as a beacon of hope in the LGBTQ+ community,” said World of Wonder co-founders Randy Barbato and Fenton Bailey. “World of Wonder similarly strives to build opportunities and access for the community, while standing beside them and The Stonewall Inn in the struggle for equality. In that same spirit, we are thrilled to partner for this one-night-only concert to offer help and support to the LGBTQ+ community during this difficult time.”
All proceeds from the concert will go to a fund where industry professionals can apply for a grant, according to Variety.
“So many careers are built and sustained by the support of the LGBT nightlife community," added event co-producer Brett McLaughlin. "It’s our turn and duty to support them during this time of need. I’m so grateful that many of my friends jumped at the chance to give back when asked. This is going to be an incredibly special evening.”
Tune in for "Stonewall Gives Back!" on Thursday, Apr. 23 at 8pm ET on World Of Wonder's YouTube Channel.
