“Homeless shelters across Chicago are getting a crash course in how to better serve members of the gay community. The Chicago Department of Human Services is conducting four days of mandatory sensitivity training at the city’s gay community center.” [Chicago Tribune]

      Yes, we’re everywhere. There are even homeless gays.

      Not to make fun, because this is important. Gay men and especially lesbians seeking emergency shelter have been turned away, just because of their orientation.

      It is estimated that gays account for up to 50% of homeless youth in New York City, either kicked out by rejection or fleeing violence. Many of the Social Services provided by cities further prejudice Gays by their religiosity which makes one question the fairness of Faith-based charities; the more vocal opponent of Gay Equality. Many individuals whether in City, State or Federal Social Services have discriminated against gays, people with HIV/AIDS and the racial minority of the dominant paradigm of needs-based groups. We must demand that a Barack Obama administration keep separation of Church and State as Gays are the predominant victims, especially our most vulnerable.
