LGBTQ+ young people are four times more likely to become homeless than their non-LGBTQ+ peers. 

Research conducted by End Youth Homelessness Cymru, Out On The Streets, highlights the often horrifying experiences of young LGBTQ+ people who experience homelessness.

In partnership with Cardiff Council, Newport City Council, RCT County Borough Council and Swansea Council, we have produced Cai's story to highlight the issues faced by young LGBTQ+ people who become homeless. 

Homelessness is challenging for anyone, but LGBTQ+ young people often have to cope with homophobic and transphobic violence and discrimination as well as everything else. 

Our research shows that they are at greater risk of psychological harm, are more likely to develop substance misuse problems and more likely to be exposed to sexual exploitation.

Ending LGBTQ+ youth homelessness is everyone's business. You can support Llamau's campaign to show that Wales is a country that will no longer tolerate young people becoming homeless simply because they're LGBTQ+.
