The teens of New York’s Ali Forney Center were visited by both Madonna and Lady Gaga over the holiday weekend.
The Ali Forney Center is “the largest and most comprehensive program in the nation dedicated to the meeting the needs of homeless LGBTQ youth.” Their mission is to “protect LGBTQ youths from the harms of homelessness and empower them with the tools needed to live independently,” according to the official website.
Madonna dropped by on the day of Thanksgiving with her children David and Mercy.
“This center protects LGBT youth from the harms of homelessness and empowers them to reclaim their lives,” Madonna wrote in her caption on instagram. “AFC provides these youth with tools they need to become independent—and more importantly, 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.”
Gaga dropped by the next day, and took the children shopping, performed her latest single “Million Reasons” and even meditated with them.
I’m here because I want this to affect other people around the world,” she said, “and to remind them that when they are kind, it not only makes the other person feel good, but it makes me feel good, too.”
