The LGBTQIA+ community are at a higher risk of experiencing youth homelessness, and often encounter discrimination when seeking support. A report by the Gay and Lesbian Foundation of Australia documented that individuals who identified were more than twice as likely to have experienced homelessness than their heterosexual counterparts.
