Cyndi Lauper to open True Colors Residence for LGBT youth who have been kicked out by their parents


As if we didn’t love and appreciate Cyndi Lauper enough already.

The singer is planning to open a shelter in Harlem for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender young people. It will be called True Colors Residence and will support young people who have been kicked out of their homes by their parents and disowned.

It is much needed. According to estimates from the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, anywhere from 3,000 to 8,000 LGBT youths are homeless in New York City,

Said Cyndi in a statement: “Kids are coming out in greater numbers as they see themselves accepted and represented on TV and in movies, but they’re still being kicked out of their homes or running away and living on the streets. We need to make sure we’re taking care of them. This is the next generation of the LGBT community.”
