Kicked Out: Voices from former Homeless LGBT Youth

 In her foreward to the new anthology Kicked Out--by current and formerly homeless LGBTQ youth-- Judy Shepard (mother of Matthew Shepard) notes that a disporportionate percentage of the youth on America's streets are there in part because they identify as lesbian, gay or transgender.  Tune in Tuesday night as Jacob Anderson-Minshall speaks with Kicked Out editor Sassafras Lowrey and four of the contributors to this powerful collection.  Hear first hand the painful and difficult experiences these kids face after they are forced from their homes because of ignorance or hate--and learn how little it can take to safe a life.
