This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots in New York City, a pivotal moment in the pursuit of LGBTQ equality and civil rights in the U.S
‘Viewpoints’ invites guest authors from outside of Wells Fargo to share an important perspective related to their work. Today, we welcome Christopher Rudisill, executive director of the Stonewall National Museum & Archives.
With the recent gains made by the LGBTQ community in social acceptance and inclusion, it can be easy to forget how different things were just last decade, let alone 50 years ago.
For 50 years, the Los Angeles LGBT Center has championed and advocated for the city’s LGBTQ community by providing critical housing, health, and social services.
As the U.S. marks the 50th anniversary of New York City’s Stonewall riots this June — and its role as a catalyst for the LGBTQ rights movement in America — it’s important to remember the significant place in LGBTQ history for another city located across the country: Los Angeles.
Over the last 21 years, The Trevor Project has saved countless young LGBTQ lives by providing 24/7 support through free and confidential suicide prevention and crisis intervention programs.
Our story began in 1998, when HBO aired the Academy Award-winning short film “Trevor.” Introduced by Ellen DeGeneres, the film was broadcast alongside the launch of TrevorLifeline, the world’s first 24/7 national lifeline supporting LGBTQ — lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning — young people in need of crisis intervention. The first calls were answered that night.
When they were kids, siblings Kenneth and Leah Martinez loved their elderly next-door neighbors like extended family. Years later, they are now the proud owners of the house next door, with help from Wells Fargo’s NeighborhoodLIFT® program.
In his teen years, Kenneth Martinez would often drive home after school, pull into his driveway, and see a familiar sight next door: His elderly neighbor, sitting in the shade of an old tree, waving at him.
He’d usually chat with the kindly gentleman, talk about their suburban Los Angeles neighborhood, and share a few laughs. The neighbor and his always-friendly wife were like extended family, and Martinez and his dad often helped them with their household needs.
Wells Fargo leads a national panel on housing affordability and homelessness; author Antwone Fisher’s story puts a personal face on the growing crisis.
Amid a round of recent news about the increasing problem of homelessness in America, Jon Campbell appeared before a standing room-only audience of affordable housing advocates to call for renewed efforts to address the crisis.
“I think the headline for all of this should be, ‘America can’t afford unaffordable housing,’” he said, as the crowd applauded. “I really believe that’s the headline. And if we can all take that mantra forward from this place, we’re really going to make progress.”
