So far in her proposed two-year budget that she released Wednesday, San Francisco Mayor London Breed has specified nearly $10 million for LGBTQs.

Over half of that money, $6.5 million, is slated for programs that Breed says will end trans homelessness in the city by 2027.

The remaining $3 million will go toward HIV prevention with the goal of reducing new infections. Breed is also proposing $35,000 for the first San Francisco drag laureate, who is expected to be named this fall.As we reported last week, the mayor's proposal for HIV prevention services is a small portion of the $10.5 million advocates are seeking, but part of their request was this $3 million to maintain prevention services.
