Editor’s Note: A hearty welcome to Cathy Kristofferson and many thanks for all her important contributions. Please visit regularly as Cathy keeps us updated with more homeless queer youth news and information. As well as other articles related to her activism.
Cathy shares that she prefers to use the word “Queer” in many of her articles. I appreciate the use of the word ‘queer’ to mean everything but heterosexual, any sexual minority or questioning status. Indeed LGBT or LGBTI or GLBT is commonly used, and constantly added to, shows how we are always inadvertently leaving someone out.
