Patti Lupone And Sting Headline 'Uprising Of Love' Benefit Concert For Global Equality, In NYC On September 15th

UprisingOfLoveOn September 15th, producers Stephen Schwartz and Bruce Cohen will partner with the United Nations Foundation for "Uprising of Love: A Benefit Concert for Global Equality." The concert, headlined by Broadway diva Patti Lupone and international superstar Sting, falls strategically around the UN General Assembly and Clinton Gobal Initiative and aims to raise awareness about the unfortunate state of affairs for many LGBTI-identified communities around the world. Proceeds from the event will go to Fueling the Frontlines, Astraea Lesbian Foundation for Justice's 3-year, $20 million global LGBTI rights campaign.

The concert's website has more information:

At this unique moment in history, when we are seeing such rapid progress in the fight for equality in the West, we cannot be blind to appalling crimes against humanity elsewhere. Today in Russia, Uganda, Nigeria, and elsewhere, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LGBTI) people are facing harassment, abuse, and violence. In some countries, recent laws have deemed homosexuality punishable by death and the situation appears to be getting worse, not better.

THE MISSION:

1. To raise awareness among the international community of violence, discrimination, and atrocities committed against LGBTI people.

2. To support LGBTI people and communities in areas where safety and dignity is compromised through funds and solidarity.

3. To support and collaborate with LGBTI and human rights organizations concerned with these issues.

The concert will be scripted by Academy Award-winner Dustin Lance Black (of Milk and Tom Daley fame) and directed by Schele Williams (Motown the Musical). Among the members of the benefit's host committee are Julianne Moore, Lance Bass, Calpernia Addams, Chris Colfer, and Melissa Etheridge.

We hope to see you at the Gershwin Theater on September 15th!

Call the Police There's a Madman Around

Last month I posted that Sting's appearance on Little Britain USA would feature a kiss with David Walliams. Said Walliams of the encounter: "Can I just say that Sting was well up for it? I had to kiss him four times and each time I did it, it got longer and more passionate. He didn't mind one bit!"

Little Britain USA: Sting Kissed a Boy and He Liked It

Lbusa

Rosie O'Donnell isn't the only guest star on the new Little Britain USA. Sting reportedly makes an appearance on the American adaptation and the show's stars David Walliams and Matt Lucas (seen above as new characters Tom and Mark) say he was more than happy to engage in some man-to-man spit-swapping as part of his gig:

Sting"Walliams says guest star Sting seemed more than happy to try out a steamy gay tongue tussle with him during filming. 'David gets to snog Sting, but that's no surprise. It wouldn't be Little Britain if he wasn't dressing up as an old woman or sticking his tongue down another man's throat,' said Lucas, 34. Walliams retorts: 'Can I just say that Sting was well up for it? I had to kiss him four times and each time I did it, it got longer and more passionate. He didn't mind one bit! The pair say they have ramped up the antics for the American audience, adding 'it probably goes a bit further than ever.'"
