Homelessness impacts people from many backgrounds, so it may not seem like an LGBTQ issue. However, the District’s 2017 Homeless Youth Census found that 31% of young people experiencing homelessness self-identified as gay, lesbian, bisexual, pansexual, or queer/questioning, and 6% self-identified as transgender.
