The singer is opening the first permanent residence for LGBT youths in Manhattan with her True Colors Fund.
As previously reported, Cyndi Lauper is using her stint on The Celebrity Apprentice to further her already vocal support for gay rights. She recently launched the Give a Damn campaign through her True Colors Fund. The new campaign encourages everyone – gay, straight, transgender, lesbian, bisexual – to get informed about and involved with LGBT issues and causes. Now, Lauper is localizing her campaign even more by opening a shelter for homeless LGBT youths in Harlem.
