Actor Darren Criss, who plays out-and-proud student Blaine Anderson on the Fox musical-comedy Glee, will headline an anti-bullying concert on Saturday, May 14 in San Francisco.

The 8PM concert at the Marine's Memorial Theatre will benefit Bay area organizations No Bully and Youth Aware Program of the New Conservatory Theatre Center.

The 150-year-old 80-member Yale Glee Club will feature San Francisco native Criss and The SFGC Alumnae Chorus at its program. Tickets available at the Marine's Memorial Theatre box office.

On Glee, Criss' character was forced to confront bullying after he became acquainted with his current flame, gay student Kurt Hummel, played by Chris Colfer.

Kurt fled to the Dalton Academy from McKinley High to escape the bullying of closeted football player Dave Karofsky, played by Max Adler.

Kurt returned to McKinley High two episodes ago after Dave agreed to organize a chapter of the gay advocacy group PFLAG.

The bullying storyline has generated enormous controversy. Celebrity conservative Glenn Beck called Glee a “horror show,” while the AFA's Bryan Fischer said the show was turning kids gay by glamourizing such relationship.
