Listen in as we get the inside story about why politicians just can't keep their hands off of gay families to win elections, particularly in 2010. Waymon Hudson, LGBT activist and writer for the Huffington Post, joins us to shed light on the landscape for LGBT foster/adoptive parents in Florida. Fred Elia, president of A Thousand Moms will compare and contrast the picture in New York. And again, who are the pawns? The children. Waymon Hudson and his husband Anthony foster parented a youth in Florida and have first-hand experience with that state's system. We will also take a look at a disturbing new report from the Center for American Progress entitles "Nowhere to Go," about the plight of LGBT youth, rejected over and over and suffering the worst outcomes on the streets. The statistics will shock you. But the solutions are within our grasp, if only we wake up. Our roundtable will focus on a disturbing new account of LGBT youth in foster/adoptive care, published by the Center for American Progress.
