Up to 40 percent of all young people experiencing homelessness identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, or otherwise non-gender-conforming.

Are you an LGBTQ youth ages 13-24, having trouble? Feeling like the world is against you? Thinking of suicide? Things spiraling out of control? Caring people are waiting to help you make sense of it all.
