Lady Gaga visits LGBTQ youths: 'I’m here because I want to be here'

"Million Reasons" songstress Lady Gaga paid a visit to the Ali Forney Centre in New York this week, which is "the nation's largest non-profit providing shelter and healthcare services to homeless LGBTQ youths".

She posted a photograph to her followers on Twitter, which she accompanied with the following caption: "I spent a beautiful morning w/ 🏳️‍🌈 youth @AliForneyCenter the largest drop-in centre in the 🌎. I brought 🎁 & led them in a group meditation."

During her visit, the superstar performed on her acoustic guitar and explained that she wanted to be there because it's so important to be kind and to constantly push for equality:

“I’m here today not because I had to excruciatingly pull time out of my schedule to come be here. 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."
