|Sound Check in Washington D.C.|
And we mean BIG SHOTS.
Greyson is in Washington D.C. today and will be performing at the 15th Annual Human Rights Campaign National Dinner tonight that is hosted by none other than President Barack Obama!
Not only will Obama give the keynote address and be presiding over the dinner and events, but New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg will receive the National Ally for Equality Award for his efforts in New York City towards equality of gay and lesbian civil rights and his sponsorship to allow same sex marriage in his state.
Tammy Baldwin, the first openly gay Congresswomen from Wisconsin’s Second Congressional District will also speak and musical artists Cyndi Lauper and Greyson Chance will both perform.
Greyson took to twitter Saturday afternoon after his sound check to post a picture and say,
“Just sound checked for the Human Rights Campaign dinner. We will be making a stand! #purplesky”

Human Rights Campaign President Joe Solmonese said,
“This has been a remarkable year in the fight for LGBT equality. We’re thrilled to be joined by national leaders and inspiring artists as we celebrate our victories and redouble our efforts for the fights that remain ahead.”The event is sold out and is expected to attract over 3,000 people.

The Human Rights Campaign is America’s largest civil rights organization working to achieve lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality. It strives to end discrimination against LGBT citizens and realize a nation that achieves fundamental fairness and equality for all.
This will be Greyson Chance’s first appearance at a gay and lesbian function and he will be appearing alongside musician Cindy Lauper who is openly gay.
There will also be tight security –
“Greyson will be subject to all aspects of the Secret Security policies and procedures. Greyson, his crew, and support staff will undergo the same security protocol that anyone does who will be present in the same room as the President of the United States.”
Be careful Greyson – you better not “Unfriend” the President!
