Lauper Brings True Colors To NYC Homeless Youth – Sarah Marie Pittman

A permanent housing facility for homeless lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth is set to open its doors in New York City early next month thanks to the support of Cyndi Lauper.

The True Colors Residence, which takes its name from Lauper’s 1986 hit song and the title of her second album, will open in Central Harlem Sept. 1, according to the website for New York City AM and FM public radio stations WYNC. The residence is geared toward youth 18-24 years old.
