Ruben Reyes is making himself at home in his new apartment on San Pedro Street in downtown L.A., setting out his phone and his CDs, planning to shop for food and cleaning supplies. After years on the streets — including San Pedro — as well as in shelters and in prison, and after just one night in the Charles Cobb Apartments, Reyes, 31, says he "feels like a king." "It's nice, it's gorgeous," he said, sitting on the bed — a bed designed, along with the nightstand and dresser, to fit the small apartment and to be durable, but also to be as appealing furniture designed for people with money to spend.

Time and again, Ruben Reyes asked the University of Texas at El Paso for permission to hold protests about environmental dangers, the administration and censorship -- typical stuff for a campus demonstration. Each time, Reyes was turned down by officials who said the student union, where the creative-writing student wanted to talk, was not one of the two "free-speech zones" on the campus of 17,000 students.

About 15 volunteer sandwich-makers line the sides of two banquet tables set up on the white tile floor of the room next door.

Smith of their concerns about two proposed city laws that would make it much more difficult for them to find work. One of several men and women who spoke on behalf of the workers was Ruben Reyes, 43, who came to Orange three months ago from the state of Hidalgo in Mexico.

As a teenager, Ruben Reyes studied for the priesthood in Mexico, as his strict Catholic family wanted. What Reyes wanted was something very different--especially for a good Latino kid. He longed to live an openly gay life. As an adult, Reyes found himself cruising West Hollywood, but he still felt culturally out of place. A year ago, when he walked into La Casa in East Los Angeles, he finally found people like himself.
