Non-Profit Spotlight: The Ali Forney Center

Before good can happen, first people must care and more importantly contribute to making good things happen. In 1992 Carl Siciliano was working at a homeless drop in center and there he met the 17-year-old Ali Forney . Ali Forney had been living on the streets since the age of 13 where he resorted to street work to survive. He started to make a name for himself, an educator of sorts and an advocate. He would educate anyone and everyone on HIV prevention and the importance of safe sex practices. He later gained the attention of the police after he began to advocate on behalf of homeless queer youth who were murdered. Ali wanted the murders investigated and justice for his friends. In 1997 Ali Forney, 22, was murdered and his death brought attention to deplorable conditions in which many homeless LGBTQ youth were living in NYC. Ali’s murder was never solved.
