Shelter for transgendered youth will open in Washington DC


Petula Dvorak reports that a new shelter specifically for transgendered youth will open in Washington DC, apparently on Georgia Ave. in NW, soon, in her Washington Post column here.   She also discusses the fact that single-gender shelters in DC may not discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity (that is, a person has the gender that the person claims).
    
When I lived in Dallas in the 1980s, there was an attempt to fund a “Safe Place” for gays thrown out of their homes, at the local MCC.  Donors were offered “founder’s shares”.
