The star known to be an active LGBT supporter and gay icon proved her title once again spending the Thanksgiving Day with homeless children living in an LGBT youth centre. The Ali Forney Centre in New York City provides a home for LGBT youth and gives them the tools necessary to live independently. The star made a selfie with homeless LGBT kids on her Instagram and captioned the pic: “This center protects LGBT Youth from the harms of homelessness and empowers them to reclaim their lives. 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 organisation helps approximately 1,400 children every year who’ve become homeless after being kicked out by their families who were un-accepting of their gender or sexual identity. The centre has 10 housing sites across the state, and a drop-in centre which is where Madonna went to meet with some of the kids relying on the service.
