I am currently homeless in NYC and my bed is provided for by the Ali Forney Center. If Mayor Bloomberg’s budget goes through, there is a good chance that I will end up back on the street or into a shelter where I’m likely to face constant harassment and probably violence. (That is not a hypothetical, I know a lot of people who have been attacked in city shelters.)
If you have a problem with a billionaire like Michael Bloomberg forcing LGBT youth like me out of safe shelters and onto the street, you can let him know here.
If you want to donate to or volunteer at AFC and help homeless LGBT youth, you can do so here.
Don’t let New York City’s billionaire mayor get a way with this. I will provide details on the planned protests of Bloomberg’s budget by AFC as I get then.
