Madonna Spent Her Thanksgiving at a Homeless LGBT Youth Center
Madonna, Queen of Pop, is turning every major U.S. holiday into a philanthropic endeavor.
Back in the summer during the 4th of July, she and her kids were busy in Africa doing charity work, cleaning up dirty water in Kibera and painting school walls. And yesterday (Nov. 24), during the Thanksgiving festivities, as many people in the country were busy loosening their belts after shoveling down overflowing plates of turkey and their uncle's dubious green bean casserole, Madge and family were spending their time at a homeless LGBT youth center.
"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," the longtime LGBT rights champion wrote on Instagram.
"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 Ali Forney Center, which was named after a gender nonconforming youth made homeless at 13 years old, is committed to educating teens about safe sex and HIV prevention, as well as providing medical and mental health services, mentors, educational and career programs, life skills training and more.
And if you're feeling very "Bitch I'm Madonna," then maybe you should spend some time and/or money on The Ali Forney Center like our favorite Rebel Heart, too.
