Q, has lived on the fringes of Los Angeles’ Skid Row for over 20 years. This area has one of the largest concentrations of homeless people in the home. When Q was interviewed, she said she felt vulnerable while living in the main part of Skid Row.

Q who is HIV positive and transgender maintained that the area is much nicer than some areas because she feels loved there. Shirley Raines who has been friends with Q-Q maintained that the main area of Skid Row can be very territorial, a major reason Q and her other gay members decided to live a few blocks away.

Raines owns Beauty 2 the Streetz, a non-profit that offers nice haircuts, food, and makeovers to Skid Row residents. She been catering for Q for the past four years. This homeless woman, Q still maintains a positive look about life despite all she has been through.

I love life. I love just the smell of nature, the flowers, and plants. This is a world too. We might not have the luxury things that they have down there, but we’re human just like they are.


A few weeks after Q’s story was aired in CNN’s United Shades of America, Raines revealed that Q’s family saw her on the show and brought her home. This is really a good news, after all, everyone deserves a good life.

According to Raines, Q had not been with her for family for 26 years now and only a few homeless people have the opportunity to reunite with their relatives. Indeed, this is a happy ending for this homeless woman.

She’s sleeping in a bed, eating at a table, living the life that everyone deserves to live. She’s got ‘miracle’ written all over her.
