While at the center, the blonde brought gifts for the people she met, and opened up to them about her mental health struggles, saying:

"I don't have the same kinds of issues that you have, but I have a mental illness, and I struggle with that mental illness every day. So, I need my mantra to help keep me relaxed."

During an interview for that same segment, the 30-year-old revealed her mental illness, explaining:

"I told the kids today I suffer from a mental illness — I suffer from PTSD. I've never told anyone that before, so here we are."

NYC Funds Refunded To LGBT Youth Center

Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikLGBT

Good!

NYC Mayor Bloomberg made $35 million in cuts recently and that money was taken away from several homeless youth organizations including the Ali Forney Center, which specifically caters to LGBT youth.

Thanks to several organizations around the country, in addition to Lew Fidler, Speaker Christine Quinn and the New York City Council, the funds have been restored!

Carl Siciliano, Executive Director of the Ali Forney Center, said:

"This news comes just a few days after Mayor Bloomberg released what many saw as a hypocritical video message to LGBT teens telling them that 'it gets better.'

These cuts would absolutely not have been restored were it not for the hundreds who have stood up and told their story. So, congratulations to all of you who have stood up and spoken up about who you are. This is a victory for all of us."

Amazing! Equality for all!
