The fund, co-founded by Cyndi Lauper, is an advocacy group dedicated to the fight for equal rights for everyone.  According to their website, their goal is "to inspire and engage everyone, particularly the straight community, to become active participants in the advancement of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered (LGBT) equality and ensure a strong and vibrant LGBT community."

The PSA was taped on January 30th, at the Standard Hotel in LA and RadarOnline.com reported that Paquin, on-camera, identified herself as being bisexual, saying: "I'm Anna Paquin. I'm bisexual, and I give a damn."

"Give A Damn" is the theme of the campaign and it officially launches online at 9AM on April 1st.  It can be found online at wegiveadamn.org.

Other celebrities taking part in the campaign include Margaret Cho, Mya, Jason Mraz, Elton John, Whoopi Goldberg, Cynthia Nixon, Sharon and Kelly Osbourne, Judith Light, Kim Kardashian, Clay Aiken, and Wanda Sykes -all proclaiming they "Give A Damn" about equality as they too publicly declare their sexuality, be it straight, gay or bisexual.
