Homeless gay and transgender youth of color in San Francisco:“No one likes street kids”—Even in the Castro
RECK, J. (2009). Homeless Gay and Transgender Youth of Color in San Francisco: “No One Likes Street Kids”—Even in the Castro. Journal Of LGBT Youth. http://eds.a.ebscohost.com.ezproxy.gsu.edu/eds/pdfviewer/pdfviewer?vid=4&sid=71902a03-ad50-42ae-adbf-0fd418bd87cb%40sessionmgr4008
Jen Reck is the author of this article and has been a lecturer in the Departments of Sociology and Sexuality Studies at San Francisco State University. In this article she examines how family issues, poverty, and homophobia lead them to homelessness, thus making “gay-friendly” places meaningful to them. The purpose of this article is to see how participation in a friendly gay neighborhood contributes to the variability of gay youth. The intended audience for this article who be a researcher who wants to learn how different environments affects the behavior or attitude of a person. This information would be helpful to someone who is interested in learning about this stuff, or someone who simply wants to join one of these communities.
This is useful to my connection to this artifact because it discusses how in different and better environments gay youth can really explore their identities. So in a different environment, they can really be themselves rather than hiding who they really are and that’s what the Castro was created for.
The speaker of this article would be the person in who conducted this study which is Jen Reck.
