We’ve worked very closely with the Ali Forney Center this year, and we’re excited to end the year by supporting the new campaign the organization launched called “Homeless for the Holidays.” The Internet-based campaign features the faces and stories of diverse New York LGBT youth forced to spend the winter without shelter. Beginning today, a new photo of one of these youth and his or her first-person story will be released every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday through the month of December. Each one of these photos was taken in November and December of this year, at a time when the youth photographed did not have access to a shelter bed.
