cyndi_lauper.jpgMTV and the gay TV network Logo are sponsoring a concert tour to drum up support for gay rights. After all, you’ve been drumming along to gay bands’ tunes for years. Think Erasure (“Sexuality”!), the Indigo Girls, and Rufus Wainwright. These groups will perform, but the tour’s headliner is long-time friend-of-the-gays Cyndi Lauper, whose song “True Colors” gives the tour its fitting name. The 15-city tour kicks off in Las Vegas on June 8 and ends in Los Angeles on June 30. (June is Gay Pride month.) Other performers include gay icons Debby Harry and Margaret Cho and lesbian favorite The Gossip. She bop, I bop, you bop!

FOLLOW THE MONEY

Corporations and billionaires don’t fund journalism like ours that exists to shake things up. Instead, support from readers allows Mother Jones to call it like it is without fear, favor, or false equivalence.

And right now, a longtime friend of Mother Jones has pledged an incredibly generous gift to inspire—and double—giving from online readers. That's huge! Because you can see that our fall fundraising drive is well behind the $325,000 we need to raise. So if you agree that in-depth, fiercely independent journalism matters right now, please support our work and help us raise the money it takes to keep Mother Jones charging hard. Your gift, and all online donations up to $94,000 total, will be matched and go twice as far—but only until the November 9 deadline.
