This week’s episode of Cyndi Lauper: Still So Unusual on WE tv follows Cyndi as she launches our Forty to None Project during last summer’s New York City Pride March.
Leading last summer’s New York City Pride March down Fifth Avenue and through Greenwich Village as Grand Marshal was the perfect opportunity for Cyndi to announce the Forty to None Project, the first national organization to solely address the issue of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender youth homelessness.
It is estimated that up to 1.6 million youth are homeless each year. Up to 40% of these young people identify as gay or transgender, while only 3-5% of the general youth population does the same. The primary factor in these young people being homeless is family rejection.
To learn more about how you can get involved in advocating on behalf of gay and transgender homeless youth, please visit the Forty to None Project at www.fortytonone.org and follow the project on Facebook and Twitter.
Cyndi Lauper: Still So Unusual follows True Colors Fund co-founder through her “struggle of the juggle” of being a rock star, mother, wife, Broadway composer, New York Times bestselling author, and philanthropist. This season also features the launch of our Forty to None Project, the first national organization to solely address the issue of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender youth homelessness.
