“TODAY’S BATHROOM CONTROVERSY IS FUELED BY THE SAME BIGOTS THAT SOUGHT TO BAN GAY AND LESBIAN TEACHERS FORTY YEARS AGO.” – HARVEY FIERSTEIN

Lauper is an award winning (Grammy, Tony and Emmy) pop icon and writer/performer of such hits as “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun”, “Time After Time” and “True Colors”. She is a humanitarian and LGBT advocate. Harvey Fierstein is a prominent actor most known for his work in Tony award winning hits such as “La Cage aux Folles” and “Torch Song Trilogy”.

The two teamed up to create Kinky Boots, an award winning musical that has grossed almost $200 million at the Broadway box office. In April 2016, they were both honored with stars on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame.

Regarding why they created the video, Fierstein released the following statement:

“So, you don’t like transgender people? Have the balls to honestly say it. Today’s bathroom controversy is fueled by the same bigots that sought to ban gay and lesbian teachers forty years ago. All these years later they’re still hiding behind the claim that they’re only protecting their children. These discussions are great opportunities to educate and strengthen the bonds that make us all one human family. But when I see discussions on social media proposing a men’s room for adult males, a ladies’ room for adult females, a little girls’ room for little girls, a little boy’s room for little boys and then another pair of bathrooms for little boys with a parent and little girls with a parent… Well, it’s time to take a step back and laugh at our own absurdity. This video is a reminder that sometimes we go to the bathroom just to pee.”
