LGBTQI+ Youth Homelessness: An Invisible Crisis
LGBTQI+ youth are disproportionately represented in homeless youth counts. They endure higher rates of adversity, and face more discrimination in housing, education and employment than their straight or cisgender peers. This session discusses the issue of LGBTQI+ youth homelessness in the Twin Cities, what Avenues is doing to support LGBTQI+ youth, and how community members can become involved. Avenues for Youth supports LGBTQI+ through all of its programs. And the ConneQT host home program provides culturally responsive housing support for youth who identify as LGBTQI+ within their community of choice.
For 25 years, Avenues has supported youth ages 16-24 in Hennepin County. Their host home program screens and trains hosts (LGBTQ or LGBTQ allies) who provide a spare bedroom & resources with LGBTQ youth.
Every Minnesotan deserves to have welcoming, affirming, competent health care no matter their sexual orientation or gender identity. Formerly JustUs Health, this nonprofit provides empowering direct services, advocacy, and organizing for the LGBTQ+ and HIV-positive communities.
