Defying Inequality - The Cast of Hair

In February of this year, there was a fundraiser in New York City to raise money for Defying Inequality: A Celebrity Benefit for Equal Rights. They raised over $400,000 for five separate groups promoting marriage equality in New York, California, Massachusetts, Vermont and New Jersey. In the following amateur video, Tony nominee and out star of Broadway's Hair, Gavin Creel, sings The Flesh Failures and is joined by the cast for Let The Sun Shine In.

Countless stars as well as the cast of about 15 shows performed in concert to raise the funds. Gay, Bi and Str8 alike, performers came out to raise their voices for marriage equality. Well done!


  1. Here's a scary comment: I just watched the movie version for the first time last weekend. I know it's way different than the stage production (which is understandably superior). I saw the numbers performed from the revival during the Tony's...Gavin Creel makes me swoon.

  2. Gavin Creel is gorgeous, with a stunning voice. I am hoping to make it to see the show while the original cast is still in place.

  3. I love that about B'way.
    They come togther first and foremost for the gay community, whether it's Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS of the Defying Inequality. They take a stand.

    Sidenote: Gavin Creel. Yum.
