From Stonewall to Homeless

Mark Segal, longtime Gay activist and journalist, has published a new Huffington Post op-ed that includes this gem:

These are the people who grew what we now call a gay community.  It was their idea to create gay community centers.  It was their idea to create health centers.  It was their idea to take care of our endangered youth.  And now we, as their community, must take care of them.  They shouldn’t have to scrap for food and a place to live every single day.  They should be able to live out their years with comfort, dignity and acceptance — what they fought so hard to win for all of us.”
