LGBTQ young people are much more likely to experience homelessness. And the experiences of homelessness are much more likely to include violence and exploitation for LGBTQ people of all ages. It is, therefore, all the more important that homeless programs and systems are safe, welcoming, and affirming regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. This workshop shares the latest research on LGBTQ homelessness and provides recommendations from experts about policies that promote inclusivity and justice, including ensuring successful implementation of HUD's Equal Access Rule.
