Up to 40% of homeless youth self-identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer, most of whom were kicked out simply for being who they are. National reports have consistently noted the prevalence of LGBTQ youth in the homeless population. Many experience abandonment and severe family conflict stemming from their sexual orientation and gender identity. Once homeless, LGBTQ youth experience alarming rates of physical and sexual assault, and greater occurrence of mental health problems and unsafe sexual behaviours.
