The afternoon protest was incredible. We had the largest turnout since the protests began. Pictures will be posted sometime tomorrow. We just want to thank everyone for having the love, and courage to come out and stand up for what they believe to be right. We thank Bruce, and Bob for traveling from across the country to come and show their support. We thank Bob P, a former client, and staff member of LIA for having the great strength to come and stand alongside everyone and show his presence.
Out Memphis to provide housing for homeless LGBT youth
GLSEN | Championing LGBT issues in K Education
Staff at Out Memphis - an organization providing resources for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals - has plans on the drawing board to build transitional housing for homeless LGBT youth. Out Memphis provides the LGBT community with counseling, support groups, outreach and assistance in finding a job. While the organization has a food pantry and clothes closet, there's not adequate housing to address the growing number of homeless LGBT youth. So it's hard to focus on school or a job when you don't know where you're going to shower or keep your stuff. Reyes said Out Memphis has been able to provide rent assistance to fourteen LGBT homeless youth through a program called Rapid Rehousing, which gives individuals a chance to get a job or go to school. But Reyes said the Metamorphosis Project will address the immediate need and give shelter to LGBT youth who, in many cases, have been rejected by their own families.

The current study examined the relationship between levels of outness to family, friends and colleagues and internalized homophobia for lesbian, gay, and bisexual individuals. Results suggest internalized homophobia is a predictor of outness to friends, colleagues, and extended family, but not nuclear family. A discussion of these findings as well as implications for counselors are provided.
