New profile & Guardian story

March 20, 2013 at 10:58 am

I have put another new profile gallery onto this site – the story of Lubos. He is gay and his family has struggled to accept him, leaving him homeless and forcing him to sign himself into local authority care aged 16. It’s amazing he’s so balanced really, but he is and I’m sure he will find happiness, stability and success in life. ¬†Please click on the image below or on his name in the menu to the left to read his words.

I was also asked to write a story for the Guardian’s housing network about discrimination against Roma people in Italy – many of whom were born in the country. I was shocked to read about the level of segregation and discrimination there. The UK is far from perfect but I think we are definitely doing far better in this regard.
