Cyndi Lauper’s True Colors holiday-themed concert to benefit homeless LGBT youth promises to be a star-studded, really queer affair with the likes of Rosie O’Donnell, Chely Wright, Wanda Sykes, Vanessa Carlton, Alan Cumming, Carson Kressley, Clay Aiken and Harvey Fierstein.

The pop icon’s Home for the Holidays concert will play at New York City’s Beacon Theater on Dec. 4, and will benefit her True Colors Fund that works to fight discrimination against LGBT people and helps to fund her 30-bed True Colors Residence for homeless queer youth, reports On Top Magazine.

“When I first learned that up to 40 percent of all homeless youth in this country identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender I was shocked and saddened,” Lauper said in a statement. “For far too long homeless youth have not received the attention, resources and funding necessary to bring an end to this epidemic. My hope is that through this inspiring evening of music and comedy we can raise awareness and much needed funds to help these young people.”

Norah Jones, Skylar Grey, Amy Lee, Angelique Kidjo, Deborah Harry and Deluka are also slated to perform.
