A new report from the Minnesota Homeless Study provides a comprehensive picture of homelessness among LGBTQ Minnesotans.

Wilder Research Scientist Stephanie Nelson-Dusek says 23% of homeless youth in Minnesota identify as LGBTQ :

“People who identify as LGBTQ that are homeless have much higher rates of experience of violence, abuse, and exploitation then people who do not identify as LGBTQ.”

Nelson-Dusek says 94-percent of LGBTQ youth reported at least one of the adverse childhood experiences.
