Shelter System In SF Is Broken

My 90 day shelter reservation ended, And I did what I was told and stood in line at Glide from 5am-7am in the cold only to be told there were no 90 day beds available. I was the 5th female(actually I'm TG) and still was not offered a bed. The 4th women in line did get a 90 day bed.
Another TG person in line did not get offered a bed.
What's that mean for me: I'm fair game for violence because I'm transgender and I will be sleeping in a park. And now all parks are off limits to people after midnight.
