Should LGBTQ People Receive a Monthly $1,200 Handout?

Should LGBTQ People Receive a Monthly $1,200 Handout?

Here’s The Scoop

San Francisco’s latest move to pander to the LGBTQ community is a monthly stimulus program exclusively for transgender residents.

Mayor London Breed announced the Guaranteed Income for Trans People (GIFT) program, which will give 55 transgender residents $1,200 a month for up to 18 months. This is allegedly part of an effort to advance equity for transgender people.

The program, led by The Transgender District and Lyon-Martin Community Health Services, claims to combat poverty faced by economically marginalized transgender people.

It will prioritize enrollment of Transgender, Non-Binary, Gender Non-Conforming, and Intersex (TGI) people who are also Black, Indigenous, or People of Color (BIPOC), experiencing homelessness, living with disabilities and chronic illnesses, youth and elders, monolingual Spanish-speakers, and those who are legally vulnerable.

This pilot program, the first of its kind, is backed by the Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development, the Office of Transgender Initiatives, and the Treasurer & Tax Collector.

The payments will be regular and unconditional, allowing recipients to spend the money as they see fit. The program will also provide other resources such as “gender affirming medical and mental health care” and financial coaching.

Mayor Breed claims the program is part of the city’s commitment to creating a more just city for all. However, one must question the fairness of providing exclusive benefits to a specific group of people, while others in need may not receive the same support.

This follows similar programs enacted in San Francisco for starving artists and in Chicago for promoting “equitable recovery.” It seems that these cities are more focused on virtue signaling than addressing the root causes of poverty and inequality.

      You’re exactly right!!! This country is too busy pandering to such nonsense instead of helping our homeless veterans who have given of themselves to fight for our country and for others who are truly in need. It’s beyond ridiculous to what lazy A * * people think they deserve! GET A JOB!!!

        Right on, you have a clear head on your shoulders. I Served in the Army as a dual-status technician-soldiers with Vietnam, Grenada, Desert Storm, and Enduring Freedom in Kuwait. The Veterans as well as Social Security recipients are supposed to get a Federal dictated 2% COLA every year to keep even with inflation, but ask any of us being forced to vacate our heritage home (meant for our children)and become homeless or worse. Now what gives these counterculture people a monthly stimulous check for choosing an alternate lifestyle?

    No, they should pay more taxes for their Sick actions, plus charge them more for the drugs that keep them alive.

    What will the looney toons come up with next? I would give them mental health treatments, but no more. This is a mental condition you know and not something to be promoted because of a crossed wire in their heads.

    The insanity never ends! Taxpayer dollars along with private sector giveaways serves to perpetuate the problem. These people keep shooting themselves on the foot with their, by definition , perverse behavior. One time mental health treatment, OK. After that they are on their own. If they get dirty again then send them an invoice for previous treatment not more money. Maybe the Mayor will take some of them home with her.
