The Transgender Homeless

This story describes the efforts of people who run homeless shelters to find placements for their transgendered clients.

The idea that when America gets a cold, black America gets the flu can apply to any marginalized community. Exact numbers of homeless people are hard to come by but many agencies are currently stretched to the max. Despite the paucity of resources I'm really glad that some are making a concerted effort to help this under served population.

I hope the powers that be in this LGBT un-friendly state are too busy addressing our myriad problems to meddle with any of these positive initiatives. But I don't put anything past them.
