Inspiration! Born This Way

Gotta Love Her!

Lady Gaga visits homeless LGBTQ youth to show that kindness counts
Early Monday morning, Lady Gaga joined with The Today Show and their #ShareKindness campaign to donate clothes, make-up, and other products to the Ali Forney Center for homeless LGBTQ youth in New York City.

Gaga’s appearance at a center that most of America has never heard of, for a segment of the population that is frequently alienated, was powerful.

During her visit, Gaga shared for the first time that she suffers from PTSD as a result of a sexual assault at the age of 19. She now handles it with medication. “I’ve never told anyone that before. So here we are. But the kindness that’s shown to me by doctors as well as my family, and my friends, it’s really saved my life.”

The “Born This Way” singer is taking action to combat lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth homelessness.

Gaga’s visit was part of the Today Show’s campaign to inspire one million acts of kindness, both big and small, across the country by the end of the year. For Lady Gaga, kindness has played in her own recovery as a trauma survivor: “I’ve been searching for ways to help myself. And I found that kindness is the best way.” The appearance of the superstar at this small center, which has only eight paid staff members, made an impact on the kids there to see her. As one teen said to her, “When family was, like, kind of, like, pushing me away because I’m gay, all I had is you and ‘Born This Way’ album on repeat.”

It makes you want to weep. These are kids who have been told by their parents that they are not okay the way they are and that they are no longer wanted. The pain must be indescribable.

“LGBTQ homeless youth are more likely to be victims of sexual violence than heterosexual ones.”

Lady Gaga recently paid a surprise visit to NYC’s Ali Forney Center in Harlem, the city’s largest shelter for homeless LGBTQ youth. She showed up with a car trunk full of gifts for them.

“These children are not just homeless or in need, many of them are trauma survivors,” Gaga explains in a video broadcast on TODAY. “They’ve been rejected in some type of way. My own trauma in my life has helped me to understand the trauma of others.”

Gaga showed up with a carload of gifts for the teens, who were shocked and grateful, to say the least.
