Cyndi Lauper received the Inspiration Award from GLSEN on May 24 as part of their seventh annual Respect Awards. Lauper is to be recognized along with Phizer, American Express, David Dechman and Michael Mercure, and many more at Gotham Hall in New York City.
The Respect Awards, held annually in Los Angeles and New York, recognize individual and corporate leaders who have helped propel GLSEN’s efforts to ensure safe schools for all of America’s students, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression.
GLSEN, the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, is the leading national education
organization focused on ensuring safe schools for ALL students. Established in 1990, GLSEN
envisions a world in which every child learns to respect and accept all people, regardless of
sexual orientation or gender identity/expression. GLSEN seeks to develop school climates
where difference is valued for the positive contribution it makes to creating a more vibrant
and diverse community. For more information on GLSEN’s educational resources, public
