Blow Back At Katrina

The Family

As a cursory look at the Men Seeking Men or Women Seeking Women sections of the New Orleans Craigslist page shows, there are gay people helping their own in the wake of Katrina. Whether you’re a Kinsey 2 or a Kinsey 6, you can help the victims of a Category 5. We will note that for those people displaced by the hurricane who are living with HIV, this period is presenting particular challenges.

The Children’s Aids Fund has set up special services for HIV’ers who got screwed by Katrina; readers are urged to contribute.

Meanwhile, one representative entry from the New Orleans Craigslist should be required reading for every homophobe. It shows a bi-racial male couple with three children in Portland, Oregon, offering assistance to storm victims. The posting is full of humanity and love for one’s fellow human beings.
