New York's Gay Men's Health Crisis will open a clinic in Queens, N.Y., on October 29 that provides legal services to people in the borough's large immigrant community who are living with HIV/AIDS, the New York Daily News reports. The clinic, called GMHC @ Queens Pride House, will provide legal assistance with immigration issues, landlord-tenant disputes, government entitlements, discrimination cases, family law, and estate planning.
"Because Queens has such a large immigrant population, we decided to partner with Queens Pride House," said Marty Algaze, a spokesperson for GMHC. "Many are at risk of being deported because of their HIV status. We realized there was a need to open a satellite facility in Queens specifically to make these services available to the immigrant community." Interns from City University of New York Law School at Queens College will assist on-site lawyers. An opening ceremony and reception will be held on October 29.
