Weekly Reader: A Christmas Miracle, Homeless LGBT Youth, & Homonationalism

Several Bilerico Project contributors were honored this week to watch as President Obama signed the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell into law, but our top story this week was our plea for a Christmas miracle for Betsie Gallardo. The HIV+ Haitian immigrant is dying of cancer in a Florida prison and has been refused medical clemency and IV nutrition because "she's going to die anyway."
