Ali Forney Center Founder Carl Siciliano

I keep hoping that the numbers of LGBT youths people thrown out of their homes will begin to diminish, that the crowds of dispossessed kids seeking our help will go down. It hasn’t happened. In fact, Trump’s election has so ramped up hatred and bigotry in our country that the numbers of young people seeking shelter from us has grown by 20%. Last year over 1,400 youths showed up at our doors.

I keep hoping that religious condemnation of LGBT young people will ease up. That hasn’t happened either. The numbers of young people who come to us after being subjected to psychological and even physical torture in bible camps practicing “reparation therapy” also continues to grow. Numerous kids, especially those who come to us from southern states, have endured this. They tell us harrowing stories of abuse.

I keep hoping that LGBT youths will be safer in their homes. But over 75% of our youths were verbally and physically abused in their homes, because they are LGBT.

Adding insult to injury, we learned last month that the Ali Forney Center is losing $300K in federal funding that supported mental health services for our traumatized youths. Frankly, it was not a big surprise. The Trump administration has virtually erased LGBT language from the federal applications for youth-serving grants. But it still hurts. After providing safe places for our youths to sleep at night, supporting their mental health – helping them overcome the violence, trauma and rejection they’ve been forced to endure – is the most important service we provide.

  1. Hi Scottie;
    I think it’s time for the youth of the nation to condemn divorce and post that anyone who divorced spouse will burn in hell!!!!! And anyone who works in the Sabbath is to Burn in he’ll. And anyone who touched the skin or days of pigs will burn in hell!!!!!!!! Maybe if screamed long enough and loud enough and obnoxiously enough the absurdity of it will finally sink in.

    Hugs

    • I don’t think these people are capable of seeing the absurdity , if they can throw their children out on the street in the name of the “loving” god. Hugs

  2. There is money for the kidfucking priests,
    There is money for the kid fucking Bishops and
    there is even money for the kidfucking Australian cardinal

    But there is no money for LGBTQ youngsters , who are Thrown out in the name of the diabolic religion, that accepts Kidfucking just by these priests, bishops and this cardinal.

    There can be just one answer: Leaving the church immediately, and working hard, that those kidfuckers no longer get funded by the society.

    Boycott the churches giving only hate to their believers in the name of the fairytalebooks of bibles.

    And for the 110%-Believers: Would it be such a shame to be in hell with all those kidfucking Clergymen??? You could meet there even Bishops and a at least one Cardinal.
    Kidfuckers united – in HELL.
