Advocates for Virginia Youth- LGBTQ Homelessness

We continue our series on the impact of prejudice and discrimination on the mental health of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer individuals. Today, we invite Alex Wagaman and advocates of Richmond youth: Aiyanna and Aaron to discuss the prevalence and impact of homelessness on youth who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer.

Last week we started the series talking about the impact of prejudice on the mental health of LGBTQ individuals and the impact of prejudice and discrimination that results in lack of access to appropriate medical care. Today we are focusing on homelessness among youth and young adults.
