Anna Wintour is giving shade to a good cause.

The legendary Vogue editor is donating a pair of her very own signature Chanel sunglasses to an auction benefiting The Trevor Project, a free crisis intervention services organization for LGBT youth.

The auction is being held in conjunction with the return of Ryan Raftery is the Most Powerful Woman in Fashion: The Anna Wintour Musical, Ryan Raftery's hit musical parody about the fashion icon on the day she released the Vogue cover of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.

Raftery will perform the show April 27 and April 28 at Feinstein's/54 Below in New York City.

Profits from the first night will also be donated to The Trevor Project. The auction will also include other fashion-related items, including a $1,000 gift certificate to Bergdorf Goodman Men's.

"I was inspired to do this after Pres. Trump's repeal of the transgender bathroom policy in our nation's schools and desperately wanted to show my support in some small way," Raftery said.

Raftery premiered the Wintour show in 2014 in New York and went on to perform the show in several other U.S. cities. London dates will be announced later this year.

He has also written and performed a musical about Andy Cohen and is set to debut Ryan Raftery's The Rise and Fall (and Rise) of Martha Stewart this summer in NYC. He has appeared on television in Ugly Betty, Malcolm in the Middle and Law & Order: SVU.
