      the faster they do, the faster we can get past this nonsense. Except for teenagers who, as we have been learning in the last few years, risk being thrown out of the house into homelessness if they come out.

      •  Cries out for a Rainbow underground railroad (0+ / 0-)

        Those are some powerfully sobering statistics.

        But there are tolerant families out there who have raised LGBT kids and families of adult gays and lesbians who are now married or in civil unions, who might be open to fostering or adopting.

        The kids on the street now didn't think they had an option.  If we get our acts together maybe we can make one for the kids who might otherwise follow.

        The answer doesn't lie in state or federal $ but in
        the love inside the hearts of those among us who accept them for who they are.

        Any volunteer railroad workers out there?

        •  You can contact the shelters and other (0+ / 0-)

          agencies who help these young people, and you can contact any of the LGBT rights groups that deal with the problems of coming out. Let us know if you get any of them working together.

          I'm putting my energies into education and Marriage Equality, and I am not in a position to deal with fostering teenagers. But I will help anybody who is.
