Joey McIntyre, Sutton Foster Perform for Equal Rights

"Let's cut the shit," says Joey McIntyre. The New Kid on the Block got a little heated during an equal rights benefit performance at Feinstein's at New York's Loews Regency Monday night, urging the hundred-something people in the room to support their gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community.

"We're all here because we want the same thing - equal rights," advocated Tony Award winner Sutton Foster, who opened the night with a dazzling set.

The True Colors Tour, a monthly cabaret organized by Cyndi Lauper's True Colors Fund and Broadway Impact, has featured everyone from Jason Mraz to Wanda Sykes to Lea Michele since its inception in 2007.

McIntyre performed a varied lineup for the crowd of adoring fans, ranging from "Love," a song he auditioned for NKOTB with ("I guess it worked," he joked), to a cover of Wyclef Jean's "Grateful," to The Music Man's "Gary, Indiana," to New Kid's first single "Please Don't Go Girl."

"I sang this song when I was 14, before my voice changed," McIntyre warned the audience. "Now I sing it just a couple steps down."
