NEW YORK — Cyndi Lauper will take her “True Colors” tour back on the road this summer.

Lauper, whose tour last year promoted gay rights, will open the second go-round in Boston on May 31 alongside fellow headliners Rosie O’Donnell and the B-52s, it was announced Wednesday.

According to the Web site, www.truecolorstour.com, the tour will stop at the WaMu theater July 1. Carson Kressley (“Queer Eye for the Straight Guy”) will host the event. “The tour is a nonstop five-hour music party with a message,” Lauper, 54, said. “This year, the party only gets bigger and our message to the fans is to get out and vote in November.”

Guest artists such as Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Regina Spektor, the Indigo Girls and Wanda Sykes will perform at various cities throughout the tour.
