    The needs of gay and sexual-minority, homeless youth: Results of a national survey

    "More than 575,000 people were homeless in the United States in January 2014 – and nearly one-quarter were under the age of 18, according to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development."

    "While LGBTQ youth are estimated to make up 7% to 8% of all young people in the U.S., approximately 20% of homeless youth served by the surveyed agencies identified as gay or lesbian while 7% identified as being bisexual and 2% as questioning. In addition, 30% of the homeless, sexual-minority youth served by these agencies were black, 14% were Latino, 1% were Native American and 1% were Asian and Pacific Islander."

    that is sad !! I wonder if it is cos their parents
    did not like it and threw them out ?? There should
    be more understanding by their parents before they
    do that to them, really.....!!
