Last night, Webster Hall hosted the third annual Ally Coalition Benefit, a fundraising concert in support of homeless LGBTQ youth organized by Bleachers’ frontman and fun.'s guitarist, Jack Antonoff. A long-time LGBTQ activist, Antonoff founded The Ally Coalition (TAC) in 2011 along with fun. bandmates, Nate Russ and Andrew Dost.

At last night’s benefit, performances by Lorde, Carly Rae Jepsen, Charli XCX, Hassan Minhaj, Jordan Carlos, and Lauren Mayberry combined to raise “over 100K for LGBTQ youth,” Antonoff tweeted. At the end, the group of artists joined hands on stage to cover Fleetwod Mac’s “Go Your Own Way.”

With the current political tension surrounding minority rights at its height, the benefit is just another example of artists mobilizing to support equality.

Watch footage from the benefit below, and visit the TAC’s website to support the cause for LGBTQ equality.
