Rising homelessness is one of the biggest crises that this country faces. There are many causes, and for LGBT people who become homeless, there is an additional factor: the prejudice they still face because of their sexual orientation or gender identity, often from their own families.
Young LGBT people are disproportionately likely to end up homeless - a study by the Albert Kennedy Trust in 2015 showed as many as a quarter people aged 16-25 facing homelessness may be LGBT.
Join LGBT Labour, in partnership with the Labour Campaign to End Homelessness and The Albert Kennedy Trust, for this Labour Party Conference fringe event. We will discuss the issue of LGBT homelessness, the causes, and how this crisis can be tackled.
