Cyndi Lauper is a true angel!
Lauper is opening The True Colors Residence in the winter of 2011, aimed at homeless LGBTQ youth in New York, between the ages 18-24!
"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," stated Cyndi.
"We need to make sure we’re taking care of them. This is the next generation of the LGBT community," she concluded.
An estimated 3,000-8,000 LGBTQ youth are currently homeless in New York City, and The True Colors Residence will provide a number of them with permanent residences with 30 studio apartments planned for the 6-story building on West 154th Street.
Such a fantastic idea!
