In America, an estimated 1.6 million youth experience homelessness every year. Yet, even more disturbing, according to the Williams Institute, 40% of the homeless youth served by agencies identify as LGBT. This panel brings together researchers, activists, and service providers to foster a dialogue about this horrific problem, and the ways people are currently working to help queer homeless youth. Panelists will address the challenges these youth face, and in doing so also highlight the resiliency and strength of these young people .
