ponies for pride.

the ali forney center is an agency that provides housing and resources to homeless lgbtqia+ youth. it is the largest agency of its kind, and has grown from a six-bed sanctuary in a church basement to assisting 1,400+ youth each year and providing 70,000+ meals annually. the afc was founded by carl siciliano in honor of ali forney, a gender-nonconforming teen who fled their home at 13 and ultimately ended up homeless by the age of 15. ali advocated for the safety of homeless lgbtia+ youth and was tragically murdered in harlem in 1997.
