Co-founded by Cyndi Lauper, True Colors United works nationally to end homelessness, focusing especially on LGBTQ youth – who represent 40% of all youth experiencing homelessness. Through a broad continuum of advocacy, training & education, and youth collaboration programs, True Colors United is creating a world in which young people can be their true selves. 100 percent of the net proceeds from the concert supports True Colors United programs.
