New York mayoral candidate Christine Quinn, an out lesbian, revealed her plan for her four-year term if she is elected, regarding New York’s LGBT community. Quinn’s proposal details five major initiatives.

The first two are establishing a major office of HIV/AIDS Policy and building New York City’s first LGBT Senior Housing Community. Quinn’s third initiative for New York’s LGBT community would be to decrease LGBT homeless youth. Quinn’s fourth initiative focuses on “effectively serving” New York’s LGBT community through its city agencies. Quinn’s last initiative is “redoubling efforts” to fight LGBT hate crimes as well as promoting tolerance. To achieve success, she plans to create a “regular and sustained law enforcement strategy for high-target neighborhoods” with New York’s Police Department.
