Cyndi Lauper - True Colors tour

On Monday June 18, I attended Cyndi Lauper's True Colors Tour at Radio City Music Hall. The special tour provided funds for the LGBT Community's Hunam Rights Campaign and was sponsored by Logo Cable Television network. I adored Ms. Lauper's performance was ulta-fabulous and inspiring. I also loved Margaret Cho's vulgar, hysterical skits not to mention Erasure , The Dresend Dolls, Debbie Harry, The MisShapes, The Gossips and others. Rosie O'Donnell herself even joined in the fun when she took over as a drummer. La Lauper jokingly explained how the real reason Rosie left The View was to join her band. Bravo to all the the performers for raising much needed funds and sending out the important anti-discrimination message! After the concert we headed to the official After-party at LQ. The East Side duplex nightspot was luxurious and roomy. But unfortunately, Cyndi was a no-show. Actually, almost all the stage performers didn't show except for Beth Ditto from The Gossips. But of course I still had a marvelous time dancing, drinking and mingling with all the celebs that did show up. They including Randy Jones (Village People), Robyn Byrd, Marilyn Soko, David Noh (Gay City News), Joe Kovacs and Madame, Ryan Wolowski (Out & About TV), Sharyn Jackson (Go! NYC), Lovari, Nickolas, Dixie (Tupperweare Show), TJ the DJ, Howie V, Murray Hill and Drag Divas Epiphany, Mimi Imfirst, Trai La Trash and Lavern Cox.
