Praise: Cyndi Lauper Gives a Damn
Being different, whether LGBTQ or nerdy or too tall or too short or too fat or too skinny or whatever seems abnormal to one's family or community, is never easy. Being rejected and ejected from one's home goes beyond not easy. Cyndi Lauper, perhaps best know for Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, wrote an article for the Huffington Post about the need to take care of youth who have been kicked out. This is about a group that Ms. Lauper started called the Give a Damn Campaign. Raising awareness and working to improve conditions for those who are the least empowered is certainly praiseworthy.
