The only LGBTQ-affirming shelter for homeless youth in Nashville did not receive federal funding because of the sequester. Things are desperate and they have had to turn people away because there is nowhere to put them.

This is a good organization run by good people. LGBTQ people make up 40% of the homeless population; mostly because they have been kicked out of their parental homes. These folks are especially vulnerable to abuse and harassment, both on the streets and in shelters that are supposed to be safe.

Please considering donating, even it is just $5. Put “Just Us” in the comments box to ensure that it goes to the LGBTQ youth programming (they do a lot of rad things at Oasis, including college prep, bike building, free meals, etc).
