Nov. 26 (UPI) -- The United Nations is set to present Cyndi Lauper with the inaugural High Note Global Prize award for her LGBTQ advocacy.
The date also represents Human Rights Day.
"We are delighted to recognize and honor Cyndi Lauper as the 2019 High Note Global Prize Laureate," Clark said in a statement.
"For decades she has promoted human rights, been a voice and active participant for change and inspired people around the world to be tolerant and true to themselves. She is most deserving of this award, and we look forward to celebrating her achievements during our inaugural High Note Global Prize award ceremony," he continued.
The Home for the Holidays benefit concert will donate 100% of the proceeds to benefit True Colors United which fights to prevent and end homelessness among gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning youth.
