After getting a Thanksgiving Day visit from Madonna, LGBT young people at the Ali Forney Center got a Black Friday appearance by another music icon — Lady Gaga.
Gaga visited the Brooklyn location of the center, which provides housing, a drop-in program, and other services for homeless LGBT youth at several sites in New York City. She brought gifts, led meditation, and performed “Million Reasons.” Watch video at the bottom of the page.
“I’m here today not because I had to excruciatingly pull time out of my schedule to come be here,” Gaga said at the center, according to I Heart Radio. “I’m here because I want to be here. And I’m here because I want this to affect other people around the world and to remind them that when they are kind, it not only makes the other person feel good, but it makes me feel good too.”
Gaga also tweeted a photo of her meditating with the young people.
