do something today

homelessness and transyouth

hey. I introduced myself here a while ago. I'm crystal and I'm 22 and homeless.
I have a few transyouth friends and i'm writing an essay for Whats Up magazine on trans-youth and homelessness...
I was wondering... have any of you been homeless as a result of gender identity? (ie- parents kicked you out etc)?
wanna talk?
I'm interested in how you survived as trans and homeless. here in Boston the shelters aren't trans-friendly.
where do you go for help?
what obsticals did you run into due to your gender identity?

feel free to drop me an e-mail at being_homeless @ livejournal.com or leave a comment here.
thanks,
crystal
