| Filed under: Gay Gay GayElton JohnJamie FoxxSad SadJane LynchRyan Murphy

Sad, but very true….

Homeless LGBT youth is a problem that faces Los Angeles everyday, and it's an emotionally jarring and eye-opening issue.

In order to combat this heart breaking situation, young writer/director Trent Kendrick and producer Michael Fossat joined forces with the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center to make the (above) short film about issues facing a large number of people in the gay community RIGHT NOW.

Star like Elton John and David Furnish, Jamie Foxx, James Woods, Lisa Ling and others have volunteered their time to heighten awareness and promote support for the organization and homeless youth!

Their mini-movie garnered so much attention, acclaimed filmmaker Roland Emmerich is hosting the film's debut at an exclusive star-studded benefit dinner this Saturday, October 19 — An Evening Under the Stars!

Co-hosts for the night include Bryan Lourd, David Geffen, Jane Lynch, Amy Pascal, Ryan Murphy and Dustin Lance-Black.

    Once again Hollywood pushing their lifestyle and moral agenda on a populace that disagrees with it. Well over 80% do not agree with homosexuality. Does not make them homophobic. It makes them natural, and having a moral compass.

    Where is the documentary on homeless Christians and conservatives? Remember I have free speech before you attack. Now bring it…

    You are kidding. I'm the only one brave enough to post this. Cowards. Where is the defense of this article. Statement. Not a question. Come on you lovers of this. Trash me with facts.

    What a fantastic video linking the LGBT community, homelessness, sexual assault and violence with HIV.

    1/3 “40 percent of America's homeless youth are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT)” How can this be in a nation where we have so many so-called social safety net programs, so many faith communities doing outreach, so many rich celebs with “charities,” and so many nonprofits?

    If anarchy is Somalia then what the hell kind of civilization is a supposedly wealthy, progressive city like L.A. with all of it’s big fancy government buildings where nearby streets are lined with homeless people?

    This is why the waste of over-duplication of LGBT groups pisses me off. There are too many LGBT groups doing the same thing (YouTube search: Too Many Gay/LGBTI Groups Doing Same Thing?) which creates an enormous waste of resources reinventing the wheel.

    Re: jeff4justice
    2/3 Online search for “gay sugar daddy” you’ll find a ton of options compared to an online search of “LGBT youth mentorship” which seems to be mostly limited to big-city area LGBT centers. That’s appalling.

    We now have half a nation in poverty and LGBTs aren’t as rich and upscale as once thought (see: The “B” In LGBT Apparently Stands For “Broke”). And yet LGBTs are bombarded with too many groups duplicating the same objectives. And yet somehow there’s enough money for 6-figure salary executive directors. (see: Blade Reveals Salaries For Heads Of Major LGBT/HIV Activism Orgs) I mean, if income disparity is wrong for the corporate world then shouldn’t it also be wrong in the so-called nonprofit world? As a person in poverty myself I see my $10 going to a drop in the buck for a 6-figure salary for an executive director more so than anything else. So I prefer to do my own no-middle person outreach out of my own pocket – however my outreach specializes in homeless people of all walks of life who are living out of their vehicles in hopes of getting them housed and preventing them from becoming street homeless. I focus on an area I have first-hand knowledge of. I also led the first multi-focused LGBT group in my hometown in a rural area of CA that was completely ignored by all the mega groups and was successful despite no funding.

    Re: jeff4justice – 3/3 My point is, anyone can do homeless outreach – you don’t have to put that off on anyone else.

    However, there is a need for beds, shelters. In addition to the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center’s homeless youth outreach (online search: L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center Youth Services), there’s also a group Los Angeles Youth Network which claims, “In a given year, LAYN has fulfilled nearly 11,000 bed nights, which says there were 11,000 less nights of coach surfing or sleeping outside. Through our 24 hour emergency shelters, group home, and transitional living programs, we make sure that not only are youth are provided safe sleeping quarters, but a place of care and refuge they can call home.” I think they meant couch surfing.

    But what about LGBTs in small town, rural, suburb areas? What about LGBT homeless adults (see: S.F. tackles dual challenge – being homeless and gay). What about the fact that half of the US is now in poverty? What about LGBTs struggling to find work? The only LGBT-focused job assistance seems to accessible at big city LGBT Centers that offer limited internet access, job boards, occasional job fairs, and job search counselor assessments.

    Re: jeff4justice – again. just a year ago, this would have 50 hits. The nation, and the world are getting sick of this lifestyle shoved down the throat of the world. Seriously. Seven comments, compared to a year ago. UH OH. The world is leaving you Mario. Hollywood is starting to dye. Look at the real world news, and you will see. And this on fricken page 15. Nite.
