Cyndi Lauper advocates on Capital Hill for LGBT homeless youth

According to the National Coalition for the Homeless, each year between 500,000 and 1.6 million youth in the U.S. are homeless or runaways. LGBT youth make up an estimated 3% to 5% of the general U.S. population, yet they account for 20% to 40% of the homeless youth population.
