Where anti-LGBTQ+ politics intersect with housing the homeless

A new report shows Southern Oregon’s largest homeless shelter is led by a conversion-therapy proponent. In June, 31 men from the white nationalist group Patriot Front were arrested in a U-Haul van on their way to Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, where, according to reports, they planned to riot at the city’s annual Pride celebration. The arrest, which drew national attention, was yet another recent indication of how the far-right Christian-nationalist and white nationalist movements have found common cause in targeting trans, queer and nonbinary people in the region.

Park’s “Pure” Power Play

It all began at the last City Council meeting. Just after public comment, Councilor Stephen Jensen made an unexpected announcement. He explained that an “ad hoc working group” had been formed consisting of himself, Councilor Paula Hyatt, and APRC Commissioners Rick Landt and Jim Bachman and former APRC Commissioner Mike Gardiner. They had met via Zoom. This was obviously news to the Councilor Gina DuQuenne and Mayor Julie Akins. These five individuals, he announced, had decided that the City Council should vote to place one of the two proposals regarding the allocation of the Food and Beverage Tax (FBT) revenues at the next meeting. Jaws went slack; you could have heard a pin drop.
