We’ve reach that time of year when we look back, take stock of the year, and begin to think about what will be in the New Year. This year, that is somewhat clouded and overshadowed – as is everything at this point – by the election of Donald Trump as the next president of the USA.
1. Trump is President-elect. If that angers or frightens you, don’t get upset, get involved.
2. What are the signs we in the LGBT community should be looking for? Trump has already made the statement that marriage equality is already the law of the land (in a “60 Minutes” interview last Sunday). But how about the Equality Act so that members of our community are not discriminated against? The reality is that, unless the Republican Congress decides it’s on their list, it will die — unless that organization I mentioned above begins to concentrate on those Republicans.
You most likely thought I’d be talking in this column about the race for president but I’m not. This column is instead about a subject close to my heart: our homeless LGBT youth and homeless transgender people. It’s a subject I’ve been involved with since 1969 and my days in New York City with Gay Liberation Front. So why write about this now during a heated presidential race?
