Voice for Equality: Cyndi Lauper
May 01, 2009
Singer Cyndi Lauper is an American Grammy and Emmy-award winning musician and actress. Lauper has released eleven albums and over forty singles, selling more than 25 million albums and singles worldwide. She continues to tour the world, often in support of human rights causes.
In Lauper’s 2008 endorsement of Barack Obama, she released the following statement:
“I believe we are at a crossroads and the next ten years will determine the future of this country. . . In particular, the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community is closer than ever to gaining full equality. We are teetering back and forth right now, and we need to act together to push us in the right direction. What we are asking for is only fair and right. We as a society, LGBT or straight, can show that civil rights are important and discrimination is wrong across the board through our vote.”
