Homeless LGBT Youth On Religion And Family Rejection

We recently took a look at the Ali Forney Center, which provides shelter, food and health care for homeless LGBT youth in New York City. In the following video, four LGBT youths speak about being driven from their homes following their family's rejecting them on religious grounds. The Center issued the video to show the harm these young people suffer and to "encourage people to reach out to the leaders of their faith traditions on behalf of our youths." Watch:

You can also see each of the four youth's complete interviews by visiting the Ali Forney Center's web page and scrolling down.
