Viral photo prompts homeless Q&A

28 Oct, 2015

Gere writes on Jena Malone’s Facebook page, about a viral image of him as a homeless man that is circulating on Facebook:

Hi, Richard Gere here. I was completely surprised to find that last week someone posted a photo of me on a Facebook fan page as a homeless man on the streets of New York that drew 1.6 million likes and over a half-a-million shares. While the story that accompanied the photograph was somewhat fictional, it seemed to have touched something important in people. I’d like to find out what that is and what we can do together to make something good and meaningful happen for our homeless brothers and sisters.

Gere says he will Q&A via Malone’s Facebook page on Oct 29 at 11 a.m. ET.

I’d like you to join me for a conversation on the issue of homelessness and how it impacts your lives…we’re excited to see what happens.
