Cyndi Lauper Creates LGBTQ Teen Haven

By Charlotte Robinson, September 01, 2011
Gay Ally Cyndi Lauper has long been an champion for LGBT civil rights. With nearly 40% of New York's youth homeless population made up of LGBTQ teen youth Lauper has decided to open a haven & safe place for them. It will be called "True Colors," Lauper stated in a press release which is the name of her 1986 hit single. Today construction on the facility began at W. 154th St & Frederick Douglass Blvd in Manhattan. The residence will have studio apartments & indoor outdoor communal space. Each resident will pay affordable rent based on their income & will receive job assistance if they do not have one. There will also be social & educational programs. How much do we love Cyndi Lauper putting her heart, soul & finances to advocate for our LGBTQ Teens…:)

In New York City, a very disproportionate number up to 40 percent of homeless youth identity as LGBT. Even more disturbing are reports that these young people often face discrimination and at times physical assault in some of the very places they have to go for help. Our primary goal is to provide a physically and emotionally safe and supportive environment that will empower our young residents to be the self-loving, happy and successful individuals they were meant to be.
