Lady Gaga treated LGBTQ youth to a concert and a shopping spree because she’s seriously amazing
While most of us spent our Black Friday hustling for bargains at the mall, Lady Gaga decided to do something a little different. Instead of buying thing for herself, she decided to give back.
Yesterday, Lady Gaga spent her Black Friday at the Ali Forney Center in Brooklyn, New York.
Named after Ali Forney, a gender nonconforming teen who left home at 13 and was murdered in 1997 after spending his life helping others, the Ali Forney Center is committed to providing housing for LGBTQ youth and helping them prepare to succeed on their own.
The LGBTQ community has long been close to Lady Gaga’s heart. So it makes total sense that she would spend her day there.
During the day, Gaga treated the homeless youth center to an impromptu concert. Her performance of “Million Reasons” was totally heartwarming, as was everything else she had to say.
The popstar had another special surprise up her sleeve, too. She had presents for all of the kids and even lead them in a group meditation.
Seeing Lady Gaga give back warms our greedy Black Friday hearts — and makes us want to donate at least some of the swag we scored yesterday.
