Madonna visits LGBTQ homeless youth center. “Because everyone deserves to be loved and everyone deserves a home.”
Madonna took some time to celebrate with the clients of a New York City youth center for homeless LGBTQ people this past Thanksgiving holiday, reports Curtis M. Wong at The Huffington Post.
The Queen of Pop undoubtedly made a few dreams come true when she dropped in at the Ali Forney Center’s Brooklyn housing site with her son David and daughter Mercy James in tow. And she praised the advocacy group’s efforts in a lengthy Instagram post:
“Had so much fun sharing Thanksgiving at the Ali Forney Center in Brooklyn! This center protects LGBT Youth from the harms of homelessness and empowers them to reclaim their lives. Each year the Ali Forney Center provides care for over 1,200 youth who are rejected by their family due to their LGBT identity. AFC provides these youth with tools they need to become independent and more importantly, AFC provides these youth with the love and support they are denied by their families. Because everyone deserves to be loved and everyone deserves a home.”
The 58-year-old superstar has been in a generous mood of late, reports The Huffington Post. On Nov. 7, she surprised fans with a free, impromptu concert in support of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton at New York’s Washington Square Park, performing acoustic versions of classic hits including “Express Yourself” and “Like a Prayer.”
