|Ground Broken For Housing Project Intended For Members Of LGBT Community
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Ground has been broken in the heart of Philadelphia’s Gayborhood for a housing project that will serve the needs of the LGBT community.
It’s described as the first urban project of its kind — six floors of low income housing for elderly lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgenders.
It’s being built with a mixture of local, state and federal funds. And that was reflected by the number of politicians on hand for Friday’s ceremony.
Mayor Michael Nutter was joined by his predecessors, John Street and Ed Rendell.
