      Ali Forney Center always sounded like an impressive & much-needed place. I’m shocked that W. 22nd St. would be hit that hard, the news sites implied otherwise I thought. Damn! I guess one of my (several) jobs is now dedicated to LGBT & Democratic donations. :(

      My hubby and I have been hit with our own financial problems, not quite knowing yet where Dec and January rent is coming from, and we’re paying Nov rent, hopefully, next week.

      Nonetheless, we wil find something somehow to send this all too important group some money — it will probably be only $20, maybe $50; but we’ll find it, and send every month.

      And that should be the pitch from them — try to sign up supporters who can give, in small amounts, but every month. Every PBS and NPR station in the country does this.

      A sad heart today.

      I just want to add that the other drop-in center for homeless LGBT youth in Manhattan, the New Alternatives Center on Christopher Street, was also decimated by Sandy and also desperately needs support in the form of money or food donations or volunteers to help with their programs including a Sunday suppers for LGBT homeless youth. The director, Kate Barnhart, just emailed me that “the kids are VERY hungry. They ate 20 large pizzas yesterday.” While they normally make and serve healthier dinners than pizzas, if they had the resources, I’m pretty sure they’d have bought 40 large pizzas, or 100, and there are definitely more than enough hungry LGBT kids without homes in the area to eat them.

      So please consider also donating to New Alternatives:
