The next day it was back to the Beekman Beer Garden for Maggie C‘s Stiletto Pride, which moved from its home base at the Maritime Hotel to accomodate a bevy of post Pride March revelers and celesbians. Among the guests were Kim Stolz, Dani Campbell, and cast members of Season 3 of The Real L Word, including Amanda Dunn, Lauren Russell, and all the members of Hunter Valentine. Oh and one more guest: Cyndi Lauper. The Grammy-winning international superstar and multiplatinum-selling recording artist decided to drop by and sing a little number for the gals. No biggie. A portion of all ticket sales went to Cyndi Lauper’s True Colors Fund, which benefits homeless LGBT youth. But as you can see, even when Cyndi was on stage, it didn’t stop a couple from canoodling in the front row, because during Pride, girls just want to have fun.
