Stumbling around the internet late last night I came across a new website/organization called 4 LGBT Rights:Equality and Justice for All, and noticed that they had an article posted about the epidemic of LGBTQ youth homelessness titled ‘Homeless LGBTQ Youth Should Be Seen. And Heard.” I was really excited to see this issue was something they were focused on, and was blown away when I reached the end of the article and saw what was written about Kicked Out!!!!
“There is an incredible collection of first hand accounts by currently and formerly homeless LGBTQ youth and service providers. The book is the Kicked Out Anthology, edited and co-authored by Sassafras Lowrey. Frankly, I think this is one of the most important civil rights documents to emerge in the United States so far this century. It is a must read for anyone who wants to understand the human price we are paying for our indifference. I am such an admirer of this book that I have already sent three copies to my old high school, and just ordered five more copies to send to elected officials. I encourage everyone to do the same – buy the book, read it, and pass it on. Buy extra copies and send them around. These stories need to be heard! ”
