On Monday, June 14th at 6:30PM a rally will be held to support LGBT homeless youth in New York City's Union Square. It's being coordinated by The Ali Forney Center, New York City's leading service and advocacy group for LGBT homeless youth.
The past year has been brutal for LGBT youth. From the vicious murders of Jorge Steven López and Jason Mattison to the carjacking of three gay Morehouse students and the weekend knife attack in Brooklyn, LGBT youth, especially those of color, remain under attack. The situation is more critical for homeless LGBT youth.
A number of progressive and LGBT organizations are participating in the rally. It's also being endorsed by a number a politicians, activists, entertainers and media types, including yours truly. Here is the Facebook page. Please come and help make a difference if you can.
