Report: One-third of SF's homeless identify as gay

http://www.signalscv.com/



ezs note:  One-third of homeless are GLBT.  Think of that.  Then do two things:  make a donation to your local GLBT chapter.  Second, DEMAND that permanent and temporary housing be built for our homeless friends.  You can make a difference!

Transgendered and homeless, youth struggles to build a life (www.nytimes.com)

*more above*

ezs note:  Normally, I let things stand as they are, but this one takes the cake.  You have a choice: shoot a rocket to Mars - for 2.5 billion dollars - to get a few scrapings off the surface - or get decent housing, clothing, dental care, and food for those most in need.

It's your choice.
