This month, we are joined by Dr. Jillian Shipherd, Deputy Director of VHA's National LGBTQ+ Health Program and Lindsay Church, Executive Director and Founder of Minority Veterans of America, to learn about how VA homeless programs can improve services to be more accessible to, and effective for, LBGTQ+ Veterans. Our guests talk about the unique risk factors facing LBGTQ+ Veterans, VA policies and services, and how VA homeless programs can strive to do better.

Veterans who are homeless or at imminent risk of homelessness are strongly encouraged to contact the National Call Center for Homeless Veterans at (877) 4AID-VET (877-424-3838) for assistance.

Wow. Thank you. -- Dr. Shipherd described my experience of the last three decades *perfectly*. In the 1980s a den of anti-gay hatred thrived at the US Naval Academy in Annapolis. We LGBTQs deserved so much better than abuse that would linger for a lifetime.
