This Saturday marks World Homeless Day.

In the UK, 24% of young people who are homeless identify as LGBTQ+, many experiencing hidden homelessness.

77% of lgbtq+ young people say family rejection is the primary cause of their homelessness.

  • Facing discrimination when trying to access safe housing is an everyday occurrence for LGBTQ+ young people, especially those who are Black and POC.
  • On World Mental Health Day we also highlight the impact of LGBTQ+ youth homelessness on mental health. Lockdown has left many young people trapped in hostile or abusive environments. 
  • To help centre voices and raise awareness of LGBTQ+ youth homelessness, please share the below tweet and fill in our survey below.
