(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Gay Pride and Cyndi Lauper are coming to CBS’ “As The World Turns” in July as the soap takes one step closer in showing same sex relationships in daytime.

On May 27, Lauper stopped by for a taping of the July 3 episode of “World Turns” for a benefit concert at Yo’s to promote her new dance album Bring Ya to the Brink (available in stores now) and her annual True Colors tour, which started on Saturday, May 31.

In the episode she will perform the songs “Into the Nightlife,” and the classic anthem “True Colors.” “Nightlife” is the new single off the “Brink” album.

In addition to singing, Lauper will dance with Luke (Van Hansis) and Noah (Jake Silbermann). Luke is there to interview Lauper for the college paper.

In an interview with EW.com’s SOAP WATCH column, Lauper revealed that she has been closely following the dynamics of Luke and Noah for awhile now and discussed the pacing of the relationship between the two.

“They’re taking their time and struggling with the heart issues, which is even more endearing than just being like the straight couples, half-naked and having sex all over the place. The best way to people is through the heart, and that’s why I think it’s kind of interesting the way they’ve done it. It’s about love.”

“As The World Turns” airs weekdays on CBS and can be watched anytime on CBS.com. Check local listings.
