On Thanksgiving Day, Madonna visited the Ali Forney Center in Brooklyn. It’s a shelter for homeless and at-risk LGBTQ youth.
And on Friday, Gaga visited a shelter for homeless and at-risk LGBTQ youth in Brooklyn called . . . the Ali Forney Center! This is probably nothing more than a coincidence.
All we really know about Madonna’s visit is that she brought her children David and Mercy, took a picture with some of the kids for Instagram, and gushed in the caption about what a wonderful place it is.

Had so much fun sharing Thanksgiving at the Ali Forney Center in Brooklyn! This center protects LGBT Youth from the harms of homelessness and empowers them to reclaim their lives. Each year the Ali Forney Center provides care for over 1,200 youth who are rejected by their family due to their LGBT identity. AFC provides these youth with tools they need to become independent and more importantly, AFC provides these youth with the love and support they are denied by their families. Because everyone deserves to be loved and everyone deserves a home. 💘🙏🏻💙!!!
As for Gaga, she brought a guitar and sang “Million Reasons”. She also sat with the kids and talked to them about how being kind to others gives you a “helper’s high,” and how she hoped what she was doing would inspire others.
