My hope is.....one day this isn't even a thing.
First off, I'd love to just see people be able to just be themselves. Secondly, homelessness, again, hopefully one day can just not be a thing. For anyone, but for an LGBTQ youth it's a whole different set of circumstances.
What is #TrueColorsDay?
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and 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.
To end LGBTQ youth homelessness, 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, an international day to raise public awareness about LGBTQ youth homelessness, and to provide supporters with simple ways to make a difference. We also host live conversations online about the issue and what everyday people are doing to end it!
