Last night HRC celebrated President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden’s inauguration with a star-studded event at the Mayflower Renaissance Hotel in Washington, D.C and drew over 1,500 attendees.

The event included a performance by music legend and co-founder of the True Colors Foundation Cyndi Lauper, as well as five-time Tony Award winner Audra McDonald and Tony Award nominated actor Will Swenson.

Frenchie Davis, Ross Matthews, Kathleen and Chris Matthews, Viola Davis, Sen. Tammy Baldwin, Rep. Kyrsten Sinema,  Rep. Jared Polis, Rep. Jerrold Nadler, the Gay Men’s Chorus of Washington, D.C and many more were on-hand to ring in the historic evening.
