Jamie Foxx, Elton John, Lisa Vanderpump, Lisa Ling and other celebs are lending their star power to a good cause. In support of the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center, ‘Any Given Tuesday’, a disturbing PSA/film shows a young boy thrown out of his house after it is discovered that he is gay. The short film depicts his turbulent life on the street. According to the center, 40 % of the homeless youth in LA are LBGT boys and girls, which offer a variety of services including food, shelter, medical assistance and job placement. Check out a few quotables from celebs involved.

Jamie Foxx: 

In post parts of this country life is still enormously difficult for kids who are even perceived to be gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered.
