Surviving homelessness as a queer teen

milkboys News & Opinions 9 Comments

Travis was disowned by his family at 17 for being gay. He used his savings to move to Los Angeles and lived on the street for weeks before the Los Angeles LGBT Center provided him a bed and helped him find a job. Now he’s helping others in his situation.

“In my mom’s house, it’s God first and then family,” said Travis in a heartbreaking interview. Check out his story below.

  1. Thank you Josh
    One of the better videos you have posted.

    As a grumpy old man I’m true to type and find myself having no time for the handsome extra good looking boy singer videos. Such crap…. ( apart from it’s always nice to have a quick peak at someone beautiful )

  2. “In my mom’s house, it’s God first and then family,” said Travis

    However,

    “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you” said Jesus in John 15:12

    Travis’ dear ol’ mom is not a reliable theologian. .

  3. We shouldn’t speak about politics because it never ends, but I am pretty sure Travis’s family votes Trump…
    Way too many LGBT homeless people out there, but at least his story goes on well.

  4. “In my mom’s house, it’s God first and then family,”

    Is it any wonder why people like me rail against “religion” and its real power: the churches? If race and police violence doesn’t start a[nother] civil war in America, it will certainly fall to the consistent insistence of continuing to allow religious privilege in this society when “religion” should have been banned over 250 years ago in this country (and should have spread throughout the world). Yes, BANNED. There’s ABSOLUTELY NOTHING useful to ANY society with its BULLSHIT, HATE AND VIOLENCE. Every single thing that [IGNORANT] people say that is “good” about religion could be done through atheism. PERIOD.

      Except one. Atheism won’t get your soul to Heaven. There is actually one (and only one) religion that will.

      1. Well, Penboy is correct on that one, getting your soul to Heaven is not a thing, good or bad, since there is no such things as immortal souls and heavens, and so no religion can get you there either, not even one and only one.

        It’s really sad when people can’t make up their own minds and have to turn to any leader, guru, religion, sect, conspiracy theory to find explanations that fit their mindset rather than the truth. This leads to some form of “follow orders” group mentality, and usually with the lowest common denominator rather than ambitious respectful progressive goals.
