Homeless people at an LGBT charity were “blown away” after Lady Gaga made lunch on a surprise visit.
It was organised yesterday by former Islington Council leader Terry Stacy, chairman of the Albert Kennedy Trust’s London office in Shepherdess Place, off City Road.
The trust offers emergency accomodation for young LGBT people who are homeless, or at risk of homelessness.
Armed with huge bags of clothes, Gaga dropped by to support its “No Room For Hate” campaign. She said: “We love these kids so much. It’s important that you all come out to support them and donate to this wonderful place.”
Mr Stacy told the Gazette this afternoon: “She was meant to be there for an hour – it ended up four-and-a-half hours. She cancelled her flight to New York because of it.
“She was great: helping put up our Christmas tree and making our lunch. It’s not often you have a Grammy winner with 64million Twitter followers making your cheese and pickle sandwiches.
“Our young people were blown away by the her kindness and generosity. It was great to have her support. Anything that is done to raise the profile of LGBT homelessness is most welcome.”
