Posted on 06/23/2013 1:13:16 AM PDT by nickcarraway
More than one-quarter of the homeless people counted in San Francisco this year identified themselves as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender, a proportion that surprised veteran advocates for the homeless who say that gays are overrepresented in the ranks of homeless youth and elderly.
The San Francisco Human Services Agency reported Friday that a total of 6,436 homeless people were found throughout the city on Jan. 24, when the most recent census to identify service needs and required for federal funding was conducted. The number represented a slight drop from two years ago.

It says one-quarter.
I don’t know but I am glad one third of them are happy.
ABC morning show mzzzzzzzzzzzzz robin touted the gay basketball player as a hero and courages, are these people also hero’s and courages? Not because their homeless becuase thier gay. robin? raaaaabin?
Most homeless are mentally ill. Homosexuals are a subset. All of them need psychiatric help. The Left has pullen the rug out from those who most need it
pair them up
Homosexuals will be a drag on this society when they get old. Who wants an old homo around, soaking up Medicare? Oh, that’s right...Medicare will be broke by then.
...a proportion that surprised veteran advocates for the homeless who say that gays are overrepresented in the ranks of homeless youth and elderly.IOW, this is about the "veteran advocates" and their jobs, promotions, and pay raises.
Homeless people fall into three categories (I’ve lived in the DC region for a couple of years and had time to observe this mess).
The first group are the ones who were employed but a nickel away from poverty-class when they were let go by their boss. They are the easiest group that the public could help.
The second group is the Vet’s. Between Vietnam and everything since....these guys have lost their focus and desire to do much of anything. Most of them are alcoholics or drug-users.
Finally, there’s the mentally deranged. You’d be better off to pack them up....move them to some state mental hospital with high fences and just feed them drugs and three hot meals a day. Yeah, there’s probably forty different mental issues that you could shove them into...being gay might be one, but the others are bi-polar, Fugue state, Grandiose delusions, Intermittent explosive disorder, Narcissism, panic disorder, etc.
These do-gooders running around and demanding money from the state, federal and city governments...simply refuse to categorize each group and take the actions that would help each actually recover. So I even suggest that the do-gooders have a disorder....help-the-homeless disorder....which prevents them from taking real steps to end the mess. Don’t expect much to ever improve here...the do-gooders are getting hyped on this stuff.
The rest of San Francisco’s population is probably 50% gay, living indoors......sex deviate mecca.
Sew a pink triangle on them and be done with it.
Not to mention HIV/STD contamination, and cronic drug use by these social parasites.
OH that kind of gay. I love chic fil a.
Mental illness thy name is gay and colored like a rainbow.
This story sounds like someone is trying to sensationalize; sounds like there’s a whole lot more to this story not mentioned. Don’t at least the homosexual community take in homeless who identify as their own?
