A building in the New York City LGBT Community Center has been named after Cyndi Lauper's hit song True Colors, "in recognition of her continued work with the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community."
Cyndi has devoted much of her time working with members of the center's Youth Enrichment Services program, helping to raise awareness about equality issues and help parents with LGBT children.
The True Colors Residence will be a permanent housing facility for LGBT youths, ranging in age from 18 to 24. The center will be supported by Lauper's True Colors fund and will open in Harlem Summer 2011.
Executive director Colleen Jackson said, "Without her, the residence definitely would not be built."
Cyndi has done so much for the LGBT community. We can't think of a better way to honor her and her beautiful song, True Colors.

Anna Paquin recently announced that she was bisexual in a PSA for gay advocacy organization True Colors First in order to do her part in the fight for equality!
"I'm not someone who endlessly talks about her personal life for no reason, but obviously, as someone who identifies as bisexual, those are issues I really care about — and frankly, I don't see why everyone doesn't care about them. So when I was asked to participate in that PSA, it was just an obvious, 'Well, of course I will.'
"It wasn't like it was a big secret. It was just a cause I cared about and privately supported, but not one that I had ever had an opportunity to speak out about in a way that would be useful. Obviously I know that one person's voice doesn't necessarily do that much, but I just wanted to do my bit."
One voice can accomplish a lot, Anna!
Good for you!
