The homophobic thread :>

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

So TV news tonight featured a non-profit center that provides a variety of services to LGBT people in need. News chick managed to keep a straight face discussing the availability of donated clothing from the center's "community closet." Yeppers, the LGBT service center really needs a community closet.

It's a good organization, though, and deserves praise even with their closet.
Established in 1972 as a community-based nonprofit organization, The San Diego LGBT Community Center is one of the most vibrant and largest LGBTQ community centers in the nation. Functioning as the San Diego LGBTQ community’s anchor organization, The Center provides targeted programs and services to the full diversity of the San Diego LGBT community, including men, women, youth, seniors, transgender and non-binary individuals, families, LGBTQ Latino/a/x community members, and their families, and those living with HIV. From the start, The Center has created and provided innovative services, many first in the nation. Below find just a few examples:

The first court-ordered same-sex domestic violence program in the nation
The first program in the nation dedicated to the Latina/o/x community
The first Youth drop-in Center in San Diego devoted to LGBTQ youth
The only agency who offers free and anonymous HIV testing in San Diego
The first Emergency Overnight Housing program devoted to LGBTQ youth in San Diego
The first Host Home program devoted to LGBTQ youth in San Diego
Provides case management and support services at San Diego’s first LGBTQ-affirming housing program for seniors
The Center’s Food Bank won the 2016 Top Neighborhood Distribution Site Award
At The Center, our overarching philosophy and approach to providing support and services is trauma-informed care. Our support and services are designed to be both preventive and rehabilitative in working with people who have been impacted by traumatic events, including bullying, violence and systemic trauma. Our team focuses on 6 key principles with our trauma-informed approach – safety; trustworthiness & transparency; peer support; collaboration & mutuality; empowerment, voice & choice; and cultural, historical, sexuality & gender issues.

Are you focused on the ironic word 'closet', or on the fact that the org does clothes sharing?

If the latter, there are plenty of impoverished gays. Plus, being a drag queen is probably pretty pricey unless the thrift shops and community closets are bountiful :o Then, sudden transitioning requiring an entirely new wardrobe must be costly :problem:
