If this doesn't just scream GAY, I don't know what does.  Toronto's world-famous Gay Pride Week festivities will be headlined by a free Cyndi Lauper concert at cruisy Queen's Park on Saturday, July 3, 2010 Lauper, who has been doing much philanthropic work for the LGBT community over the past few years including her 2007 True Colours Tour, is now giving back to her fans in a big way.  In fact, she seems to be catering almost exclusively to the LGBT community now.

This is all hot on the heels of her newly-launched MAC Cosmetics VIVA GLAM Campaign alongside Lady Gaga. Together, they have broken sales records with their lipsticks according to John Demsey President of The Estée Lauder Group.  The campaign serves to raise awareness of HIV/AIDS in women. 

Toronto's Pride festivities bring in over one million people each year to the city and millions of dollars in local revenue.  It was recently selected as the official destination of 2014's World Pride.  I had the pleasure of performing at Pride back in 2008 and it was an opportunity I will never forget.  Should be an amazing show and I cannot wait to see it.


  1. i've seen cyndi in concert a few times; she was really quite engaging, though i found the last performance less so.

    it was her second true colors tour, and she just seemed angry.

    let's hope she is back to her normal self this time around.

  2. yah she seemed to have had some problems. not quite sure what. did you hear about the good morning america performance she walked out of for her last album?

  3. i'm glad i didn't see that. has this performer forgotten that her (chosen) job is to perform?
