Sure to ignite this year’s Pride Parade in San Francisco are the double balls of fire known as Cyndi Lauper and Charo will be the Grand Marshalls. Both women have been advocates of the gay rights movement and entertainment icons.
Lauper, who joined her openly gay sister Elen, in PFLAG awareness campaigns has worked tirelessly for equality for the LGBT community. In 2007 , the well known True Colors Tour was launched which raises awareness about discrimination. It is the grand finale of this year’s Pride celebration.
Lauper just released a new CD called Bring ya to the Brink.
Charo has also released a CD callede Espani Cuchi. She has a Show planned for the Herbst Theatre called The Return of Charo and Her Las Vegas Show on June 29th.
