Visage, a judge on RuPaul's Drag Race, helped a homeless LGBT fan to find a place to stay last Monday through her Twitter page.

Michelle Visage redefined what it means to be an ally Monday night.

A teenaged fan reached out to Visage on Twitter, saying that he had come out to his family and was subsequently kicked out of his home.

"I came out to my family last night and got kicked out of the house. I just want to die, please tell me it gets better," the eighteen year-old, Jake, said.



Visage replied, asking if he had anywhere to go. When he responded that he did not and that his parents were taking back his car, Visage tweeted looking for help.

"I need urgent help i[n] Elizabethtown, KY," Visage wrote. "LGBT shelter for a kid who came out and was kicked out. PLEASE HELP."

Luckily, many of Visage's followers replied in support of the teen.


Although the boy's Twitter is now private, Visage updated her followers, letting them know that she's still in contact with the teen and that he is safe.
