Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, or questioning (LGBTQ) young people are 120% more likely to experience homelessness than non-LGBTQ youth. While many factors contribute to LGBTQ youth homelessness, identity-based family rejection is the most commonly cited reason.
In order to do that, we need to understand the issue and the ways in which we can all play a role in ending it. That's why we launched #TrueColorsDay (formerly known as #40toNoneDay), a national day to raise public awareness about LGBTQ youth homelessness, and to provide supporters with simple ways to make a difference. This year we'll also be hosting a series of live conversations online!
