On Tuesday night at downtown LA's Grammy Museum, (the night following the actual Grammy Awards telecast, no less) a group of musicians and comedians gathered together in support of a very special cause. Bleachers and Fun. frontman Jack Antonoff and his sister Rachel's The Ally Coalition was created with the hope of inspiring fellow artists in the entertainment industry to take action for LGBTQ equality and last week saw the organization host the second in a series of events aimed at raising awareness and support for LGBTQ youth.
Tuesday's activities included a panel discussion in the afternoon for local students as well as a special concert in the evening hosted by Tig Notaro and featuring stand up sets by Reggie Watts, Patton Oswalt, Wyatt Cenac and musical performances by Corinne Bailey Rae and Mike Posner.
Photos from Tuesday's concert are below. For more on The Ally Coalition, be sure to visit theallycoalition.org and follow @allycoalition on Twitter.
