What do Cyndi Lauper, Bette Midler, Dolly Parton and Lady Gaga have in common? Great cheekbones and a gene that makes us want to be them? Sure, but the icons also share a love for LGBT equality, as currently evidenced by their participation in the True Colors Fund charity auction.
We could namedrop the other gay-loved celebrities who are donating to the auction, but we promised our therapist we’d stop the nasty habit. Oh what the hell, we’ve already fallen off other horses (as well as eagerly jumped on a few); gorgeous guys Mark Wahlberg and Jason Mraz, the incomparable Rosie O’Donnell, music maestro Rufus Wainwright and more are giving True Colors a helping hand.
The big-time marquee names are enticing, but Lauper knows that we girls just wanna have fun and has curated an auction like we’ve never seen. In fact, the booty-perking items match word-for-word our premature-but-desired-nonetheless bucket list:
Lunch with and tarot card reading by Cyndi Lauper;
VIP tickets and meet & greet passes to Bette’s Vegas show;
VIP tickets and meet & greet to a Lady Gaga concert;
Handwritten lyrics from Jason Mraz, Andy Bell, Michael Stipe, and more;
Set visit to 30 Rock
If we win the generous offerings we not only help out the charity arm of Lauper’s True Colors Tour, we could actually die happy (side note to friends and family: we’ll gladly haunt you from the grave if we’re buried in anything less than Prada). But hopefully our tarot reading by the pop-star-come-philanthropist will reveal that we have plenty of time left and more gay-wet dream auctions to conquer.
Auction ends Thursday, June 25
