GRAMMY and EMMY award-winning artist and advocate CYNDI LAUPER will launch the FORTY TO NONE PROJECT, a national project of the TRUE COLORS FUND aimed at empowering and advocating on behalf of homeless gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) youth, while educating and raising awareness around the issues they face. The FORTY TO NONE PROJECT is the first national organization that works solely to address the needs of homeless LGBT youth, who make up to 40% of all homeless youth in this country.
To kick-off this new effort, the FORTY TO NONE PROJECT has produced a public service announcement (PSA) that presents the realities of LGBT youth homelessness through tangible statistics, and encourages the audience to get informed and get involved in the FORTY TO NONE PROJECT.
Additionally, the Project will launch a website at www.fortytonone.org on JUNE 24th to educate and engage the public, as well as provide resources and information to empower homeless LGBT youth and support the organizations that serve them.
