Activist Cyndi Lauper is set to open a safe haven in New York for gay teenagers suffering tough times.
The singer is preparing to launch the True Colours Residence in Manhattan on 1 September (11) for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (Lgbt) youngsters who have found themselves homeless.
Lauper promises the residents will be offered affordable rent options and given career guidance.
She says, "In New York City, a very disproportionate number (up to 40 per cent) of homeless youth identify as Lgbt. Even more disturbing are reports that these young people often face discrimination and at times physical assault in some of the very places they have for help. This is shocking and inexcusable!
"We'll be building from the ground up so our residents will have a brand new, modern building with studio apartments for each resident and both indoor and outdoor community space to socialise or attend education and recreation programmes.
"Each resident will be responsible for paying affordable rent based on their income and will receive ongoing assistance in obtaining employment best suited to their individual interests and skills."
