ll over the nation states are considering reducing the eligibility threshold for many AIDS programs -- Florida is no exception. The current income eligibility requirement in the state is 400 percent of the Federal Poverty Level. The state may reduce that to 200 percent. But opponents of any reduction say it would cut Floridians living with HIV/AIDS off from lifesaving HIV/AIDS medication, care and services. Currently there are 9,600 patients using AIDS Drug Assistance Programs in Florida and 3,700 on waiting lists. Tom Liberti, Chief of the Bureau of HIV/AIDS at the Florida Department of Health, said if the state lowers the eligibility to 300 percent it would affect around 300 people, while at 200 percent it would affect about 1,600 people. But Liberti said even if his department ends up recommending a reduction he would also recommend those patients currently receiving assistance be grandfathered in. Liberti added the problem isn’t that the state or federal government is slashing their budget. In fact the funding has stayed relatively the same over the last few years. But it turns out that is the problem. With the collapse of the economy and high unemployment rates additional people are seeking assistance. “We have massive unemployment and 4 million people in Florida are without health insurance. But we haven’t received any increases in federal or state appropriations, he said, adding his department is looking at other options as well. “We’re working on a number of different fronts,” he said. “All factors will be taken in to recommendation. That’s why we’re taking input from the people about the change itself.” More than 1,000 people attended he four public hearings Florida held recently about the possible changes. “It’s been very moving. People have been testifying about their personal life and situation,” he said. “Almost 100 percent of the people have been opposed to lowering it to 200 percent. Normally by this time he knows how much money he’ll be receiving from the federal government, but because of budget delays in
Congress those numbers haven’t come in yet. He’s still hoping for an increase. There’s also an ADAP supplemental fund Florida hasn’t been eligible for in the past because the state never had patients on waiting lists. The waiting started last June when the state decided to close the program to new enrollees. Now with 3,700 patients on the list he’s hopeful Florida will receive some additional funds. “We were not eligible for it in the past because we didn’t have a wait list,” he said. “That could be a multi-million dollar award.” Capping the program was just one of the cost containment measures the state did last year. They also reduced the list of approved drugs from 100 to 50. Now they’re looking at the eligibility requirements. No recommendations will be made until late summer or early fall. After that the public will have another opportunity to discuss the changes. Liberti said other states have or are considering reducing eligibility requirements. In Illinois for instance they recently reduced their eligibility from 500 percent to 300. AIDS Health Care Foundation is adamantly opposed to any eligibility reductions and is urging residents to contact their local representatives to voice their concerns. AHF argues the move would increase medical costs to the state in the long run as AIDS patients would naturally end up seeking more expensive emergency care at hospitals around the state. “If this continues to move forward we will take our fight all the way to Tallahassee,” said Jason King, Patient Advocate for AHF. King understands times are tough and so his organization has come up with several suggestions of their own that do not include reducing the eligibility percentage. Those include more funds from the state, dispensing generic drugs in lieu of brand names, and making sure medication isn’t being dispensed after the patient is no longer taking it. “A huge problem though is drug pricing,” King said. “We don’t believe they’ve done enough work to bring down those costs.” Liberti agrees. Negotiating better drug prices is on his list as well.

ormer U.S. District Court Chief Judge Vaughn Walker recently told a small group of reporters that it would be a “very slippery slope” to say that a judge’s “sexuality” should prevent him or her from handling a case such as the trial against Proposition 8. Many legal activists –gay and straight—agree. In fact, the lead attorney for the Yes on 8 coalition that is defending California’s ban on same-sex couples marrying agrees. “We are not suggesting that a gay or lesbian judge could not sit on this case,” Charles Cooper states in his motion to vacate Judge Walker’s ruling against Proposition 8. But in their April 25 motion seeking to vacate Walker’s ruling, Cooper and his team argue that, “Given that Chief Judge Walker was in a committed, long-term, same-sex relation-
ship throughout this case (and for many years before the case commenced), it is clear that his ‘impartiality might reasonably [have been] questioned’ from the outset.” The U.S. Code governing “Judiciary and Judicial Procedure” does not stipulate that a judge should recuse himself because of any specific personal characteristic that he or she has. It draws a case-specific line: The Code states that a judge should recuse himself “in any proceeding in which his impartiality might reasonably be questioned” or in any case where the judge “knows that he … has a financial interest in the subject matter in controversy … or any other interest that could be substantially affected by the outcome of the proceeding….” It is the latter directive Yes on 8 focuses on because, in an April 6 interview with reporters, Walker acknowledged having been in a relationship with a man for the past 10 years. “[I]f at any time while this case was pending before him, Chief Judge Walker and his partner determined that they desired, or might desire, to marry,” wrote Cooper in his motion, “Chief Judge Walker plainly had an ‘interest that could be substantially affected by the outcome of the proceeding’.” “Indeed, such a personal interest in his own marriage would place Chief Judge Walker in precisely the same shoes as the two couples who brought the case,” said Cooper. “Such a clear and direct stake in the outcome would create a nonwaivable conflict, and recusal would have been mandatory.” Certainly, being able to marry provides couples benefits, including financial benefits. That has been a key argument from plaintiffs in this case and from legal groups fighting the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) in other federal cases. But it is hard to imagine how Judge James Ware, whose job it will be to rule on the
the case,” wrote Cooper. “… Because he did not do so when the case was assigned to him, and has not done so since, it must be presumed that he has an interest in marrying his partner and therefore was in fact the ‘judge in his own case’.” But that’s Cooper’s presumption—that all people in long-term relationships want to get married. It is well known in the LGBT community that not all gay and lesbian couples want to get marriage. Census data shows the same to be true for many 6!1,*$7%!,0)$3%-8*( straight couples. Data released in 2008 showed the number of unmarried heterosexual couples living together numbered about six million –up from less than one million in 1977. And, in a twist of irony, it was a 2006 study by a group that opposes same-sex marriage (the Institute for Marriage and Public Policy) that claimed only about 15 percent of same-sex couples who live in places where they can obtain a marriage license choose to do so. And then there’s the reality Cooper argues, in his motion, that Walker that, if Walker and his partner had wanted should have “at a minimum” provided “full to get married, they had a six-month windisclosure on the record” about his rela- dow of opportunity to do so in California tionship “so that the parties could consider –between May and November 2008, before and decide before the case proceeded fur- voters passed Proposition 8. Not surprisingly, then, Cooper attempts ther, whether to request his recusal.” (Apparently, Cooper and his team were either to persuade Judge Ware of Judge Walker’s unaware of what the San Francisco Chronicle impartiality by characterizing certain of his called an “open secret” concerning Walker’s acts during the trial as having been “marked being gay –or maybe they just didn’t put by a number of irregular and unprecedented rulings, both procedural and substanstock in rumors.) But the Code also states that, “disqualifi- tive, that give gravely disquieting force to cation is not required if the [judge] divests the ‘appearance of partiality’ created by the himself or herself of the interest that pro- belated disclosure of Chief Judge Walker’s vides the grounds for the disqualification.” long-term, committed relationship.” Among In other words, Walker could presumably those rulings, said Cooper, was Walker’s divest himself of any potential gain from his request that Yes on 8 disclose confidenruling if he simply declared that he has nev- tial, internal communications of the proer intended to marry his same-sex partner Proposition 8 groups; and his ruling that the trial proceedings be broadcast and web and that he never intends to do so. Cooper appears to address this aspect of streamed. But neither of those rulings could the Code when he notes that Walker “had a have a demonstrated impact on the case beduty to disclose not only the facts concern- cause both of those rulings were overturned ing his relationship, but also his marriage by higher courts. One thing that seems painfully clear from intentions….” “Only if Chief Judge Walker had un- this latest round of side issues to the Propoequivocally disavowed any interest in mar- sition 8 case is that, whatever Judge Ware rying his partner could the parties and the decides concerning the motion to vacate, public be confident that he did not have a that ruling, too, will almost certainly be dedirect personal interest in the outcome of cided by a higher court. motion to vacate, can determine whether Walker and his partner “desired” or “might” have desired to marry during the course of the trial without asking Walker –either in court or through an affidavit. And that will lend extra drama to the June 13 hearing on the motion to vacate because Judge Ware has ordered Judge Walker to appear in court that day when Judge Ware hears arguments on a separate motion, concerning videotapes of the trial.

ed for six games a few years ago for “inappropriate public comments, not pertaining to the game.” That would be when he referred to his celebrity girlfriend as “sloppy seconds.” A former Vogue intern, Avery’s on-and-off the ice exploits have been making hockey gossip news for years. But now it’s time to applaud him. You may remember it was only a few weeks ago that Kobe Bryant put his foot in his mouth by referring to a referee as a “flaming faggot.” So lots of us cheered this past weekend when his Los Angeles Lakers went down in flames at the hands of the Dallas Mavericks in the NBA playoffs. Soon afterwards, the Atlanta Braves pitching coach, Roger McDowell, also made news with gay slurs directed at fans in San Francisco. McDowell, once a star reliever in his playing days, was in the bullpen during a pregame warm-up when he began heckling three men and asking them, “Are you guys a homo couple or a threesome?” McDowell proceeded to make crude sexual gestures with his hips and a bat towards the group. It was actually a married man, at the game with his wife and child, who complained to him about the insulting remarks. “I told him there are kids out here, and he should not behave like that,” Justin Quinn stated. “And McDowell told me “that kids don’t belong at a baseball park.” Not so sure Major League Baseball would agree with that. While Kobe Bryant paid a $100,000 fine to the NBA for his ‘faggot’ remarks, MLB suspended McDowell indefinitely. To his credit, McDowell has issued a public apology, and acknowledged his remarks were hurtful and wrong. These are not the first slurs athletes have directed towards gays. In 2003, media celebrity and star New York Mets catcher Mike Piazza had to deal with rumors that he was gay, which made national headlines for a week. Stating he was heterosexual, he chalked up the rumor as being a simple “byproduct of fame.” Then he added “I would be perfectly okay playing with a gay teammate.” He added the player’s sexuality would be “irrelevant if he was doing his job.”
In other words, most athletes could care less what you do at night if you can take an outside curveball and drive it into right field for a game winning hit. Athletes are trained to win. They do a better job at that than being role models. So far, two months into the 2011 baseball season, six major leaguers have been arrested for DUIs. Don’t ask me what is going on there.
rofessional athletes have been making the news these past few weeks on gay issues, and not in a good way. It was therefore encouraging to hear that professional hockey star Sean Avery of the New York Rangers has recorded a video in support of gay marriage. More than that, he also told the New York Times that he would stand behind any young hockey player who came out of the closet. While he may be a menace on the ice, he is fighting for a good cause off the ice. While playing for the Los Angeles Kings, Avery lived in West Hollywood, California. In New York, he lived in Chelsea, commenting “I certainly have been surrounded by the gay community. And living in New York and when you live in L.A., you certainly have a lot of gay friends.” It’s a step up for Avery, who was suspend-

For his part at least, Rangers winger Sean Avery says he doesn’t see what the big deal is about having a gay teammate. In fact, Avery says that if he found out about a gay youth hockey player that needed support, he’d go out of his way to help: “If there’s a kid in Canada or wherever, who is playing and really loves the game and wants to keep playing but he’s worried about coming out, I’d tell him to pick up the phone, call..
.and tell him to book me a [plane] ticket. I’ll stand beside him in the dressing room while he tells his teammates he is gay. Maybe if Sean Avery is there, they would have less of a problem with it.” Kids should know they can grow up not only to be gay politicians but gay athletes as well. The straight world needs to be reminded that if you call us fairies we will kick your ass. For all his faults, Sean Avery joins a very short list of professional athletes who have gone on the record to endorse gay rights. There needs to be more. In next week’s newspaper, we will show how some athletes are reaching out to the gay community. The tipping point for tolerance in sports will be when someone who is taken seriously as an athlete and a person comes forward. It would be best if this act was done affirmatively by a proud gay athlete, instead of one caught by a cop in a car with his pants down. There are enough athletes out there who could make a difference right now by speaking out while they are still wearing their uniforms. When that day comes, that gay athlete will find a world of support in the gay media, and even some on the field. It won’t be easy, but erasing discrimination or ending homophobia never is. Still, athletes more than most should know what it is like to step up to the plate, against all odds, overcome adversity, and be a champion. Somewhere out there is a hero in waiting.
new study finds that homosexual men are twice as likely as other males to have been diagnosed with and then survive a cancer, shining a light on the unique medical risks that gay people may face. It’s not the first time that researchers have noted differences in health risks linked to sexual orientation. Gay men, of course, are at higher risk of becoming infected with HIV, while lesbians may be more likely than heterosexual women to get breast cancer. Both gay men and lesbians have higher rates of tobacco use than the general population, and research has shown that lesbians drink more and are more prone to obesity than other women. The new study adds to existing knowledge, but “there’s a painful dearth of data about lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender health in general,” noted Liz Margolies, executive director of the National LGBT Cancer Network, who’s familiar with the new research. In the new study, published online May 9 in Cancer, researchers examined surveys involving more than 122,000 California residents from 2001, 2003 and 2005. Among other things, the surveys asked about sexual orientation and whether the participants had ever been diagnosed with cancer. About 8 percent of the gay men in the group reported having had cancer – almost double the rate among the heterosexual and bisexual men surveyed. Lesbians didn’t have a higher rate of cancer than other women, but lesbian cancer survivors were about twice as likely to report
that they had fair or poor health compared to heterosexual women. The study can’t say whether gays and lesbians are more likely to develop cancer in the first place, since it doesn’t include people who have died from the disease or may be too ill to answer questions, stressed study author Ulrike Boehmer, an associate professor of community health sciences at Boston University School of Public Health. Experts already believe that gay men face a higher risk of anal, lung, testicular and immune-system cancers, she said. For their part, lesbians are thought to possibly be at higher risk of breast cancer, perhaps because many of them don’t give birth. But firm statistics are hard to find. “I can’t tell you if we have an increased rate of lung cancer, because no national cancer registries are collecting information about sexual orientation,” Margolies said. “We’re left hidden in that data, which is critical for us to have. We know that white women are more likely to be diagnosed with breast cancer and black women more likely to die from it. That’s important to know, and we need to know similar things so we can get funding and set up programs that address our needs.” While things are changing, she added, another long-standing challenge for gays has been an unwelcoming atmosphere in many medical offices. “Until we can guarantee a safe, respectful and welcoming experience, we’re not going to show up,” she said.

quamous Cell Cancers of the Anus account for .05-.1 percent of all colon and rectal cancers in the general population. Over the last five years however, SCCA accounted for almost 20 percent of the colon and rectal cancers at Holy Cross Hospital in Fort Lauderdale. SCCA belongs to the family of Human Papilloma Virus related cancers as does cervical cancer and several others. SCCA can be detected through anal pap screening similar to vaginal pap screening for detection of cervical cancer in women. If the anal pap identifies abnormal cells, a High Resolution Anoscopy is performed to locate the specific areas for biopsy and subsequent ablation or eradication. It is this HRA procedure Medicare has disallowed. This decision has a significant impact specifically on the gay population in general and even more significantly on the HIVpositive population — male and female, regardless of sexual orientation. Prior to HIV, the incidence of SCCA in men who have sex with men was 35/100,000, a rate almost equivalent to the rate of cervical cancer in all women before the introduction of pap screening. Through use of vaginal pap tests and subsequent ablation or eradication of affected tissue the rate of cervical cancer has been reduced by 80 percent in countries which adopted routine use of pap screening in sexually active women. In 2011, the rate
of cervical cancer in all women has been reduced to 0.8/100,000. It may be possible to achieve these same dramatic results in the prevention of anal cancer as well. Prior to the development of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART), the rate of SCCA in HIV-positive MSM was at least 70/100,000. In the almost 15 years since the widespread adoption of HAART and the extended longevity of HIV-positive patients, rates have been reported to be from 90-140/100,000 and is continuing to rise in all reports. These findings place SCCA as the second most common cancer affecting both MSM and HIV-positive patients, exceeding both lung cancer and colon cancer and only less common than prostate cancer. *SVXLIGSQTPIXIEVXMGPI% KSXS84+9`=3Ic*9*7
n Joseph F. Lovettâ€™s 2005 documentary, â€œGay Sex in the 70s,â€? survivors of the 1970â€™s reminisce about gay life in New York City during the hectic decade between the Stonewall Uprising and the AIDS epidemic. Listening to the likes of Arnie Kantrowitz, Lawrence Mass, Tom Bianchi and even Larry Kramer wax nostalgic about the good old days, I thought about the French statesman Talleryand who, having survived both the French Revolution and Napoleon, said that â€œhe [or she] who has not lived in the years around 1780 has not known the pleasure of life.â€? Talleyrand, of course, was one of the lucky ones. Like the veterans in â€œGay Sex in the 70sâ€? â€“ and Talleyrand â€“ I am fortunate to be alive to tell my story. And while I was not featured in Lovettâ€™s documentary â€“ a New York-centered movie that ignored what was going on elsewhere at the time â€“ I told my
story in various anthologies and in â€œRebels, Rubyfruit, and Rhinestonesâ€? (2001) James T. Searsâ€™s 70s history of the LGBT South. My presence in Professor Searsâ€™s book, unlike Talleyrandâ€™s in French history, is serendipitous, I was in the right place at the right time doing the right thing. Even so, this experience allowed me to join the likes of Jack Fritscher, Brad Gooch, Ethan Mordden, Felice Picano, Edmund White and the heroes of â€œGay Sex in the 70s.â€? Today we tend to idealize the post-Stonewall, pre-AIDS decade as a golden age of gay sex. Like most men of a certain age, we who survived the disco era tend to exaggerate our youthful sexual experiences. Like Talleyrandâ€™s aristocrats, only a minority of white gay men, and a few men of color, living in large cities of the USA, Canada, Australia and Western Europe, were able
to enjoy â€œthe pleasure of [gay] lifeâ€? in that crucial decade. There certainly wasnâ€™t much joy in being gay in the rural South, not to mention the Third World or behind the Iron Curtain. Most of us who were openly gay in Southern cities like Miami or Atlanta, New Orleans or Houston, were mostly young and poor and naive and very untypical. Most of the Southern gay â€œA-listers,â€? who would have been the queens of gay society up North, were in the closet. To be publicly gay was to court disaster, as was the case with the 28 gay men who perished in a fire that consumed the Up Stairs Lounge in New Orleans (1973). That someone like the late Logan Carter, a.k.a. â€œRoxanne Russell,â€? flourished in such a climate speaks volumes for Carterâ€™s force of character, and his incredible talent. If there was anything that characterized the men and women of the â€œRubyfruit generation,â€? it was our innocence and our idealism. We really believed we could make things better, for ourselves and for our brothers and sisters. Though we lost some of our innocence on June 7, 1977, the day the voters of Miami-Dade County, Florida repealed their â€œgay rightsâ€? ordinance, we managed to keep our idealism intact throughout repeated electoral defeats, the assassination of Harvey Milk, and the â€œWhite Nightâ€? riots. The first March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights (1979) was, at least for the men, a celebration of gay sexual freedom as
well as a political statement. Many people who did not live through the 70s view that decade as a period of unbridled decadence and the people who were sexually active then as unprincipled libertines who sowed the seeds of their own destruction. This is unfair of course, people who cruised urban bars, baths, back rooms, parks, trucks and docks from 1970 to 1979 could not know that AIDS was just around the corner. I certainly donâ€™t regret living through the gay seventies, though I would do anything to bring back the many friends that Iâ€™ve lost since then. It was wonderful to go through my prime at a time when the drinking age was 18, and when the worst you could get from sex, we thought, could be cured by a trip to the VD Clinic. I was lucky and privileged to be involved in Floridaâ€™s LGBT movement during its early years and to be out when most â€œcommunity peopleâ€? (to quote the semicloseted leader of a semi-closeted group that flourished at that time) were not. And though the seventies was a period of separatism for both lesbians and gay men, I was blessed to have some wonderful women friends. Finally, though Iâ€™ve lost my 70s innocence, I managed to retain my idealism throughout 35 years of grief and disappointment.

We’ve come build lives that are original, and beautiful beup with a wonderfully simplistic tag line ‘Love cause of it.”
Arndt’s ability to move hearts and minds goes beyond his business expertise. His gay life has not been lived from the sidelines. He worked with Larry Kramer when ACTUP was fresh. He lived through the Reagan years of AIDS ignorance and held hands of five friends who died because of it. His stories of coming out publically, privately and professionally seem always to have been inadvertently lived on the grand scale. While working on Wall Street as an investment banker, his employer, Morgan Stanley, transferred him to Hong Kong for two years. Closet be damned, he swapped the first class ticket the company gave him for two coach tickets and brought his boyfriend with him. When his life story is made into a movie, only the eye candy du jour should audition for the roles of his gorgeous and famous ex-lovers and boyfriends. Like all good business consultants, Arndt has a long range plan made clear on the C4E website: “Going forward, Couples for Equal-
ity will syndicate its materials and gallery, partnering with organizations and not-forprofits which advocate similar values in an effort to educate people on the importance of supporting diverse relationships without judgment or legal obstacles.” He emphasizes the fact that changing hearts and minds is not only about legislation. Just as the Civil Rights Act of 1964 has not yet eliminated discrimination, the eventual repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act, Don’t Ask Don’t Tell and other oppressions will not end our need to see the many faces of love. I thoroughly enjoyed shuffling through the C4E photos and am proud my husband and I are among the first few hundred couples featured. So far, 9 countries and 22 states are represented. Also, if you are single and therefore not about to post a couples shot, the yenta in me would like you to know that the handsome Chip Arndt is also single. I’m just saying.% Please visit www.couplesforequality.org

n 2009 Chloe Noble, founder of Operation Shine America decided to walk across the United States, to meet youth who call “the streets” home. Prior to, and while walking across the country she tried to forge a relationship with LGBT community centers and homeless youth organizations. Initially, very few organizations responded. “I was homeless off and on for seven years,” said Noble from her headquarters in Salt Lake City, Utah, a city known to have a large number of homeless teens. “We learned 42 percent of homeless youth identify as queer. It was then we decided we had to do something to help these kids. They don’t have a voice, and they can’t be heard.” Nearly 1.7 million “unaccompanied youth” roam our streets. Statistics and numbers are helpful, but Noble knew someone had to work for those numbers, not merely repeat them. “I didn’t understand then if you don’t have a formal relationship with these organizations you can’t really connect with them,” said Noble, who gained credibility when OSA linked with Utah Pride. “What’s really frustrating is not only are the kids not being taken care of, but the organizations caring for them aren’t being taken care of.” OSA does not hand out blankets and food to homeless
youth. Instead, they bridge the gap between homeless youth, the organizations providing for them and lawmakers. Through events, such as the upcoming May 14 Project Shine America, OSA establishes a concrete presence. However, one has to wonder – especially in terms of minors – why not just pick the kids up, put them into foster care, a detention center, or some other facility to “take care” of them? In San Francisco Noble saw teenage sex workers, and asked police to do something. The police said they couldn’t do any/0-'*$)'2-*?$>'!)1*($'>$';*(%&.')$#0.)*$%4*(./%?$$ thing for precisely the same reason No/'!(&*#+$'>$';*(%&.')#0.)*%4*(./%"'(, ble wanted them to step in. “They couldn’t do anything because they are homeless ness as a “lifestyle?” “No,” exclaimed Noble. “Out of the hundreds of kids youth. There are homeless or runaway programs in every city across the country. However, 53 percent of these kids we met across the country only three of them were simply come out of foster care already, they don’t want to face go- traveling, with a loving family back home. Many homeless kids say being on the street is better for them. Dig deeper ing back. Things are not working,” said Noble. Of course, youth are easily persuaded by peers to “fit and they reveal abuse, neglect or poverty forced them out.” Florida, blessed with hospitable weather, beaches to sleep on, in.” One has to wonder – is it possible they see homelessand other amenities is a popular destination for the homeless. Gainesville, FL will participate in Operation Shine America this year, to call attention to the silent plight of youth. “We’re the only city in the entire South that’s doing this. We estimate there are between 700 and 800 homeless youth !"#$%"&'() in Gainesville,” said Tara Lee, coordinator of Project Shine Gainesville, which takes place on May 14, at 8:30 p.m. on the Plaza of the Americas at the University of Florida. A total of 25 American cities will participate. Lee, who is transgender, also runs a ministry called the Alliance of Divine Love, working mostly with LGBT individuals and advocates for Gainesville’s homeless, recently voted one of the worst American cities for that population. “Politically we’re a blue island in a sea of red. So of course we get a lot of kids coming here, we’re a liberal city! Gainesville, in the spring of 2009, enacted an LGBT-inclusive clause in terms of basic civil rights and employment,” said Lee proudly. !"#$%&'(!) It’s expected 350 people will attend. The Rev. James Meritt of the Gainesville MCC will share experiences of working with homeless LGBT youth. At 9 p.m. they will pull out glowsticks, lighters, and flashlights. “We need to shine a light on these kids, giving them a light to security, shelter, and bring them home,” said Lee. This problem does not end after addressing it with the May 14 events. Further coverage related to the plight of LGBT homeless youth in South Florida will soon appear in SFGN.
