Lady Gaga visits the Albert Kennedy Trust shelter in London on Wednesday and met some homeless LGBTQ young people. With gifts and donations, she spent her whole day bonding with the kids at the shelter, which is being run by a voluntary organization created in 1989 to serve LGBTQ teens who are homeless, living in a hostile environment or in housing crisis.
Lady Gaga later shared her inspiring visit to the shelter in an Instagram photo of herself together with the kids.
She captioned the picture: "I went to the inspiring @albertkennedytrust in London today to meet some homeless and suffering LGBTQ youth and #ShareKindness on be half of the @btwfoundation. They are so sweet, talented, and ambitious. But the holidays are very different for them so we bought some gifts and bonded sharing our life stories and I did some research on what they really need to survive. They need positive words and donations to keep LGBTQ children who were abandoned off the streets and out of shelters that are dangerous. They are normal good kids, I hang out with them all day. They deserve a real shot at life."
Lady Gaga, who has always been extraordinarily supportive of the LGBT community, also visited the Harlem's Ali Forney Center in New York days before she went to Europe.
During her visit at the shelter, she told the young LGBTQ people her inspiring story of dealing with a mental illness. She bravely revealed that she suffers from post traumatic stress disorder.
"My own trauma in my life has helped me understand the trauma of others", she said during an interview with the Today Show. "I told the kids today that I suffer from a mental illness. I suffer from PTSD. I've never told that to anyone before, so here we are."
