Cyndi Lauper is standing in solidarity with the LGBT community by choosing not to boycott the state.
“I would play in North Carolina. I think that people would need us there. Wherever there’s a shut out, wherever people don’t accept other people, the other people need you,” Lauper told TMZ.
Although fellow musician Bruce Springsteen chose to cancel his April 1 concert in protest of North Carolina’s HB2 law not every performer is avoiding the state altogether.
Joel McHale chose to perform in the state last week and donated proceeds to the LGBTQ Center in North Carolina.
