Jane Lynch to Host Annual Trevor Project Fundraiser

Jane Lynch to Host Annual Trevor Project Fundraiser

Benefit will also feature "Kinky Boots" star Billy Porter

Jane Lynch will host "TrevorLIVE New York," the Trevor Project said Wednesday. 

The annual benefit for the gay rights organization will be directed by Michael Wilson, who recently guided a new version of Horton Foote's "The Trip to Bountiful" to a Tony nomination for Best Revival.

It will also feature performances by Billy Porter, the star of "Kinky Boots," singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles and DJ Kiss.

The Trevor Project said additional performers will be announced shortly.

Lynch is best known for her portrayal of the fiercely competitive cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester on "Glee," but she also has a Broadway connection. She is currently starring as Miss Hannigan in the revival of "Annie."

The fundraiser will take place at Chelsea Piers in New York on June 17.
