Cyndi Lauper is teaming up with Pink, Josh Groban and Susan Sarandon for her third annual Home For The Holidays concert to benefit lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth. The initiative aims to reduce the homelessness rate in the LGBT youth community through the Forty To None project, an initiative seeking to "educate and engage the public and advocate within government and media...", to help the 40 per cent of homeless youths who identify as (LGBT). The concert will take place on 7 December (13) at the Beacon Theatre in New York and 100 percent of the ticket sales will go to Forty To None. A statement from Lauper, reads, "Home for the Holidays is once again going to be an amazing night of music and comedy in support of a cause close to my heart, homeless gay and transgender youth. I'm proud that we have built a show that not only sells out every year, but has become well-known for bringing together a stellar array of artists to help change the world through an evening of incredible performances."
