In To Be Out: Gay Celebrities

NEW YORK (CBSMiami/AP) — Lady Gaga is taking her Born This Way Foundation on the road and she’s bringing it South Florida.

The singer announced Thursday that the Born Brave Bus Tour will tailgate outside her upcoming U.S. concerts and provide a space for 13- to 25-year-olds to learn more about local resources on anti-bullying, suicide prevention and mental health services.

Her foundation focuses on youth empowerment and self-confidence.

Organizations like The Trevor Project, Campus Pride and the National Association of School Psychologists will assist on the bus. Participants will not need a ticket to the show to partake.

The Born Brave Bus will be open ahead of each Gaga concert for several hours. The U.S. leg of the Born This Way Ball Tour kicks off Jan. 14 in Tacoma, Wash.

The tour arrives in South Florida on Friday, March 15th at the BB&T Center in Sunrise and Saturday, March 16th at AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami.
