The LGBT Center provides for homeless youth that are so typically turned away by family. A full 40% of homeless youth are LGB or T. The Center provides counseling, health services, and housing. I'm very lucky as a gay man to have had a loving home and I believe in giving back.
The incoming administration, especially through Mike Pence, has squared itself against LGBT progress. It's more important than ever to preserve and expand the accomplishments that we've had under the Obama Administration. The LGBT Center has been pivotal in this strategy since 1969.
Recently, I've been getting involved with homelessness in LA. While I was fundraising for the Home Walk put on by United Way in Downtown LA, I was contacted by a friend and colleague over the recent death of her homeless sister. She said, "The homeless are among the most marginalized people in our community, and they deserve to receive support with dignity. When it is not enough for families to try and bring in their loved one's from the streets, we truly need a village." I encourage everyone to build villages.
