Queer and trans youth face homelessness at a much higher rate.

  • Many youth are kicked out of their family homes, many are uncomfortable staying in shelters, and many face discrimination when trying to search for rental housing- especially BIPOC 2SLGBTQ+ youth.
  • Many youth report not feeling safe with other service providers or in housing programs because of their 2SLGBTQ+ identity.
  • Our community members are reporting that the rates of domestic violence, and violence experienced in housing, have increased dramatically since the start of the pandemic.

These infographics speak to the challenges that many 2SLGBTQ+ youth face.
