ONE homeless LGBTQ (Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual/Transgender/Questioning) teen dies every FOUR hours on the street. SIX will die today! 

"A Place Called Home" by Burning Daylight Productions, Los Angeles, California is a hard hitting drama which is bound to 'set the world on fire'.

New Yorkers want a mayor that embodies their town: strong, resilient, and diverse. Seven candidates vying for the Democratic nomination for Mayor took the stage at Manhattan’s Town Hall theatre Wednesday evening, each proving that they are that living embodiment of those Big Apple ideals.

At times heated, at others downright hilarious (primarily during a question about texting-and-driving that left Anthony Weiner speechless as a full house roared with laughter), the debate was proof that each of these candidates posses the hard-as-nails qualities most sought after in a mayor. The topics pressed by the panel of television, radio, and print journalists covered a wide swath of interest to New Yorkers, with everything from healthcare, income inequality, the need for emergency plans, and job creation all up for discussion.
