Lady Gaga Showed Up At a Shelter For Homeless LGBTQ With a Car Full Of Gifts for For Them

Lady Gaga recently paid a surprise visit to NYC’s Ali Forney Center in Harlem, the city’s largest shelter for homeless LGBTQ youth. She showed up with a car trunk full of gifts for them.

“These children are not just homeless or in need, many of them are trauma survivors,” Gaga explains in a video broadcast on TODAY.

“They’ve been rejected in some type of way. My own trauma in my life has helped me to understand the trauma of others.”

Gaga showed up with a carload of gifts for the teens, who were shocked and grateful, to say the least.

“I love to give things to people who have nothing or less than me,” said Gaga.

“Kindness to me is an action of love, or a showing of love to someone else. I also believe that kindness is the cure to violence and hatred around the world.”
