LGBT Community Responds to Haiti Earthquake

A magnitude 7.1 earthquake struck the Caribbean island nation of Haiti on Tuesday, January 12 and early estimates suggest the death toll could reach 100,000. There is widespread damage, hunger and lack of access to water and power. There are reports of hospitals having collapsed and damage to the capitals airport making it increasingly hard for aid groups to rescue victims and provide life saving supplies.

This is fantastic to know about, especially since some of the bigger charities have a dodgy (at best) record on LGBTs.
