Lena Dunham and life partner Jack Antonoff made headlines last month when they swore not to get married until Dunham’s gay sister is legally able to. Now they’re taking their oath of solidarity steps further with this Talent Show for the Ally Coalition, an organization created by Antonoff and the band Fun to encourage entertainers to take a public stand for LGBTQ rights. Singer-songwriters Andrew McMahon and Ingrid Michaelson will perform along with Fun and other musical acts. Janeane Garofalo and Lena Dunham will also perform sets at this one-night-only variety show to promote awareness about bullying and violence toward gay teens.
