LSHV says that when families are forced to move, they often lose important employment opportunities, which lead to financial hardship. Some of the things that legal services like LSHV are preventing are unwarranted evictions, advocate for healthy and safe living conditions. They also assist families in keeping protected subsidized housing by supporting individuals who might be facing foreclosures. More than ever, Legal Services need assistance in order to truly give justice to all.

The purpose of this post is not to provoke or elicit controversy but, finally, not only express my own actual experiences in the world but also place my perspectives in written form. Given what I’ve seen in the LGBT community (or communities, more accurately) and in the academic communities, I do not expect much good, but attempt to understand anyhow. It comes to pass that what I express is my actual life, and I am far more in the closet about it than I have ever been about the lesbian/gay closet. Far more.
