Cyndi Lauper is opening a 30-bed housing facility for homeless LGBT youth in Harlem on September 1st. The True Colors Residence, named after her 1986 hit True Colors –which has become the unofficial “be yourself” anthem– is located on West 154th Street near Frederick Douglass Boulevard and is the first permanent housing facility of its kind in the city. Lauper has been a big supporter for LGBT rights, was moved to pursue this project because up to 40 percent of homeless youth in the city identify as LGBT.
