Happy Pride! Let’s Celebrate LGBTQIA+ People by Ensuring Safe, Affirming Care

Each June we celebrate Pride to honor the diversity and resilience of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer individuals and the impact they’ve have had on history locally, nationally, and internationally.

Unfortunately, members of the LGBTQIA+ community still often face discrimination in many areas of their lives, in particular housing status. LGBTQIA+ individuals, especially youth, disproportionately experience homelessness and face difficulty finding and sustaining support services, often due to stigma and harassment.

According to the National Coalition for the Homeless, “Some transgender individuals have even been turned away from shelters solely due to their gender identity, or have been subjected to verbal, physical, and sexual abuse when forced to stay with members of the sex they were assigned at birth (especially in the case of transgender women).”

We’ve rounded up some Council and partner resources regarding health and homelessness among LGBTQIA+ communities so that providers serving people experiencing homelessness can create a knowledgeable, safe, and affirming environment for all their clients.
