Stories from Kicked Out Anthology featured on Out Loud
For almost 8 years, Out Loud as brought you queer voices not heard in the mainstream media. Tonight, Jacob Anderson-Minshall speaks with Sassafras Lowrey, editor of Kicked Out, which is being published this month. Kicked Out is an anthology that brings together the voices of current and former homeless LGBTQ youth and tells these forgotten stories of some of our nation’s most vulnerable citizens. You’ll also hear from contributors to Kicked Out, youth telling their own stories.
In the U.S., 40% of homeless youth identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer (LGBTQ). In Kicked Out, diverse contributors share stories of survival and abuse with poignant accounts of the sanctuary of community and the power of creating chosen families. This anthology (introduced by Judy Shepard) gives voice to the voiceless and challenges the stereotypical face of homelessness.
