“Every morning, thousands of LGBTQ youth wake up and begin their day without knowing where they will go to sleep that night. Persistent levels of family rejection, bullying and discrimination and targeting at school contribute to unconscionable rates of homelessness and housing insecurity. Studies have found that as many as 40% of youth living on the streets or facing housing insecurity identify as LGBTQ. Systemic discrimination in employment, education and housing also increase the likelihood that these youth will remain homeless upon adulthood and therefore reliant on government programs. Transgender individuals face even higher rates of homelessness and poverty and are at even greater risk of experiencing violence either on the street or in a shelter.”

LGBTQ youth are 120% more likely to be homeless than non-LGBTQ youth. In recognition of True Colors Day, we’re calling on all communities to help put an end to homelessness among the most vulnerable in our society.

How COVID-19 Is Impacting People Experiencing Homelessness

“To combat the spread of COVID-19, physical distancing measures are being instituted around the world. But for those experiencing homelessness and insecure housing, safety measures are not only out of reach, they’re not an option.”

People experiencing homelessness during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic are vulnerable due to overcrowded shelters and pre-existing health conditions.

With massive closures of businesses, the homeless population are being left behind and forgotten. Especially, LGBTQ+ youth.

How could this have been avoided, and how do we come together to help?

How should we as a community respond?
