In America, it is estimated that up to 1.6 million youth are homeless each year. Up to 40% of them identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer (LGBTQ). The True Colors Fund is committed to reducing that disproportionate percentage from 40% to none.
We believe that LGBTQ youth homelessness is a community issue. We believe that real change can happen when people come together with a shared vision. We believe in thinking outside the box – and that means working innovatively and collaboratively, as well as engaging unlikely partners in our work. In order to end LGBT youth homelessness, we need to think both proactively and reactively to come up with solutions that will lead to systemic change. That means working to not only end homelessness among LGBT youth, but to prevent it.
GAYME & ROSÉ is a 90-minute charity event to benefit the True Colors Fund, an organization co-founded by Cyndi Lauper to end LGBTQ youth homelessness. The event is produced and hosted by True Colors Fund GLAMBASSADOR Steven D’Onofrio.
Not only is GAYME & ROSÉ a charity event, but it is also one big celebration of individuality and love. Let’s grab some glitter and come together to create a world where all young people can be their true selves.
