cyndi_lauper.jpgMTV and the gay TV network Logo are sponsoring a concert tour to drum up support for gay rights. After all, you’ve been drumming along to gay bands’ tunes for years. Think Erasure (“Sexuality”!), the Indigo Girls, and Rufus Wainwright. These groups will perform, but the tour’s headliner is long-time friend-of-the-gays Cyndi Lauper, whose song “True Colors” gives the tour its fitting name. The 15-city tour kicks off in Las Vegas on June 8 and ends in Los Angeles on June 30. (June is Gay Pride month.) Other performers include gay icons Debby Harry and Margaret Cho and lesbian favorite The Gossip. She bop, I bop, you bop!

A BETTER WAY TO DO THIS?

We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and we can't afford to come up short. But when a reader recently asked how being a nonprofit makes Mother Jones different from other news organizations, we realized we needed to lay this out better: Because "in absolutely every way" is essentially the answer.

So we tried to explain why your year-end donations are so essential, and we'd like your help refining our pitch about what make Mother Jones valuable and worth reading to you.

We'd also like your support of our journalism with a year-end donation if you can right now—all online gifts will be doubled until we hit our $350,000 goal thanks to an incredibly generous donor's matching gift pledge.
