On October 7, organizers held the first LGBTQ Connect, an event to help the city's LGBT homeless population at the San Francisco LGBT Center.

In an eye-opening film, filmmaker Marc Smolowitz highlight's the city's homeless problem and the ways that The Mayor's Office of HOPE, Project Homeless Connect, and AIDS Housing Alliance are helping them.

Assisted by sponsorships from Metta Fund, Sass Social Justice Fund of Horizons Foundation, Dignity Fund, Haas, Jr. Foundation, 80 service agencies came together to connect the city's homeless LGBT with organizations that can help them.

Important to think about, especially as we celebrate Thanksgiving.

You can find out how to volunteer at Project Homeless Connect. No word on when the next LGBTQ-specific connect will be held but you can follow on their Facebook page.

  1. "SAN FRANCISCO'S MASSIVE LGBT HOMELESS POPULATION GETS BIG ASSIST FROM LGBTQ CONNECT"

    Lol! Another great alphabet soup fail. Did "LGBTQ Connect" decide to throw all the Qs under the bus? Or did they just forget their own name? And by the way, which of the 2 Qs was betrayed? Homeless "queers" or homeless "questioning" people?

    This is what happens when you build your identity around an ideologically contrived lie. You can't even keep the lies straight within a single news story. And it isn't just the headline writer. Go check out the video. They can't decide if they are helping the Qs or not! And why has nobody mentioned the I's and the A's and Ps?!

    There is no such thing as LGBT. LGBT and all of its many variations are artificial and arbitrary, so you inevitably see fails like this.

  2. Ignoring assfaces like Matt above, I live a block from the LGBT center and didn't know of this. Yet I've (oddly) allowed three homeless guys to stay in my place over the past year. They were down on their luck, and no I never had sex with any of them. It's a hideous problem given that most are HIV+, ADD or ADHD, and using a ton of drugs. It hasn't always ended up well, but SF is a magnet for such things. Also, I'm kind of an idiot. Too much empathy.
