LGBT Youth Homelessness: What are You Going to Do about It?

LGBT Youth Homelessness: What are You Going to Do about It?

What is the solution to LGBT youth homelessness? If you’re reading this, then it is likely that you (like me) wish for a clear and actionable perhaps simple instructive answer to that question. I imagine that you (like me) know that we do not live in clear and simple times. And there is no single solution to the social problems that contribute to homelessness among LGBT youth— including heterosexism/homophobia, cisgenderism/transbias (the ideology that denies/ pathologizes one’s understanding of their gender and the interpersonal enactment of bias toward transgender and gender-expansive people), poverty, and racism.
