Queer & homeless — not mostly ‘youth’

Q Connect620x188

Nearly 30% of San Francisco’s homeless children and adults are LGBT. That’s about double the homeless percentage of the city’s general population, according to the city’s latest survey. San Francisco holds its first-ever LGBTQ Connect, a targeted version of its Project Homeless Connect events that help low-income people find housing and a wide range of services, Monday Oct. 7.  Eric Jansen’s guests on Out in the Bay this week are Project Homeless Connect director of programs Emily Cohen and AIDS Housing Alliance/SF director Brian Basinger, who hatched the idea for LGBTQ Connect. Tune in to learn about the services offered Monday at LGBTQ Connect and for a discussion about what “homeless” means in today’s economy, why LGBT people have a particularly hard time in homeless shelters and a hard time getting services, how evictions are disproportionately affecting LGBT people, and how San Francisco and other cities are addressing these challenges.  (Live interview broadcast Oct. 3, 2013)

The Boy Who Was Not A Lesbian

Yanet&Cookie

What makes us male or female? Or somewhere in between? Or not even on that narrow line? The Boy Who Was Not a Lesbian & Other True Stories is an unusual and beautiful book put together by Norwegian photojournalist Kristin Lyseggen in which 11 people from seven countries who define themselves as “born in the wrong body” share their stories in words and photographs. Meet Kristin; Bo & Marcus, both featured in the book; and Kristin’s partner Herb Schreier, a psychiatrist at Children’s Hospital in Oakland who works extensively with transgender youth and young children, and hear a little of their stories on this week’s Out in the Bay. Eric Jansen hosts.  Re-airing Thursday, Aug. 22, 2013, 7pm PDT on 91.7 FM SF Bay Area & kalw.org worldwide. (First aired June 6, 2013)
