San Francisco Democratic Mayor London Breed announced a plan Tuesday to “end transgender homelessness” in the city by 2027.
The plan would direct $6.5 million in the proposed budget to combat homelessness, specifically for people who identify as transgender, according to The Bay Area Reporter, an LGBTQ news outlet.
“Today I announced my 5-year plan to end transgender homelessness in San Francisco, which includes investing in programs that support and create real long-term change in the lives of transgender people,” Breed tweeted.
The plan focuses on getting the transgender homeless population housed quickly, “making any instance of homelessness brief and rare, according to the mayor’s office,” the Reporter added.
Twitter users were quick to criticize the mayor’s plan for prioritizing certain homeless people based on their gender identity.
“What happens if someone is homeless and not transgender?” self-described moderate liberal Michelle Tandler asked.
Former UFC fighter Jake Shields wondered, “So if I’m homeless and say I’m transgender I get a home but not otherwise? Makes perfect sense.”
Another Twitter user slammed Breed’s plan as divisive, writing, “We speak about how division is bad for this country and yet here’s a mayor dividing the homeless. Does this make any sense? Are we going to differentiate addicts based on race, religion, eating habits, etc.?”
