Cyndi Lauper announced the lineup for her eighth annual "Cyndi Lauper & Friends: Home for the Holidays" benefit concert taking place at New York City's Beacon Theatre on December 8. The show will also honor the 10th anniversary of the Lauper co-founded True Colors Fund.

"LGBTQ youth are strong, brave, and resilient," Lauper said in a statement. "At 'Home for the Holidays,' we’ll raise our voices in solidarity with LGBTQ young people—and raise money to support the True Colors Fund’s work to end homelessness among LGBTQ youth. I’m so grateful to the artists for donating their time and talent to bring attention to this important cause."
