Make TONIGHT Count: New Yorkers Rally for LGBT Homeless Youth

The story of a homeless teen is never black and white. Make a difference, tonight if you are in the New York area, rally!

New York City’s Ali Forney Center is rallying in Union Square to bring attention to LGBT youth homelessness. Both state and local budgets have cut funding for youth shelters in New York, where 40-50 percent of the estimated 4000 homeless youth identify as LGBT. Despite being the largest LGBT homeless shelter in the country, the Ali Forney Center stillfalls far short of providing the support necessary to shelter all those abandoned young people. Watch a video about tonight’s rally and the strife of LGBT homelessness:
