Carl Siciliano, founder and executive director of the Ali Forney Center, has been chosen as a "Champion of Change in the Fight Against Youth Homelessness" and will attend a special reception at the White House on July 12. Siciliano (pictured above and, at left, as a teen) says:
"It is thrilling that as we celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Ali Forney Center, we are also being recognized by the White House for our pioneering work on behalf of homeless LGBT youth...I am very grateful to President Obama for recognizing the needs of homeless LGBT youth."
