Cyndi Lauper to Perform at NYC Pride Dance on the Pier

LauperCyndi Lauper will perform her new single "Sex is in the Heel" (along with hopefully, a few more favorites) at NYC's Dance on the Pier on LGBT Pride day, June 24.

"NYC Pride also announced a new extended run time for the Dance on the Pier. The event will begin at 5 p.m.,following the conclusion of the LGBT Pride March, and run until 2 a.m."

Said Chris Frederick, Managing Director: “We responded to a certain level of discontent with the later start time. We think these new hours will fit everyone’s schedule and allow for an extended Pier Dance that has never been experienced in the history of New York City Pride Week.”

Additionally, NYC Pride will be adding an additional DJ to its Dance on the Pier line-up. DJ Eddie Baez will now be spinning the opening spot from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

  1. What has she done to herself? I could have sworn that was a picture of Bernadette Peters.

  6. @ MIKEFLOWER : Cyndi is not a lesbian, her sister Ellen is, that's why she's so close to the cause. Cyndi Lauper's been married to (actor) David Thornton and they have one son, Declyn Lauper-Thornton, so stop spreading false rumours around...

  8. What a legend! I wish I was in New York to celebrate Pride with the Amazing talented Cyndi Lauper! She's done so much for our community and her supports goes back from the early 80's. A great GREAT friend of our community with an incredible voice! I heard that she is writting the music for the Broadway Show "Kinky Boots and that she is also coming out with a new reality show! Lot's of love to you Cyn! Thank You for being a friend!

  9. Love her. Totally misleading to call this a Pier Dance. It's indoors, boys. No sun, no sunshine, no fireworks. Another circuit party. Yawn.

  10. @Buzz I'd love to know exactly where you would put 5k+ people outside in New York City. Also, you'd be bitching if it rained and you spent the $90 on a ticket so regardless something makes me think you're the type that's never happy with whatever changes come your way.
