“A homeless shelter serving LGBTQ youth in New York City is hoping to give dozens a warm place to stay thanks to the late Golden Girls star, Bea Arthur. The residence, named for the gay icon whose generous donation made the project possible, is slated to open the 18-bed shelter at 222 E. 13th St by February 2017, according to DNAinfo.
The $3.3 million city-funded project bears the name of the Broadway and television actress, who was also among the Ali Forney Center’s greatest supporters. Arthur put on a benefit show for the then-struggling nonprofit in 2005, and left $300,000 to the center in her will.”
