National LGBTQ+ Youth Homelessness: Research Agenda

National LGBTQ+ Youth Homelessness: Research Agenda

The National LGBTQ+ Youth Homelessness Research Agenda has been in development for the past 18 months. The project was led by a research team of young people with lived expertise (from NYC, Richmond, Anchorage, and L.A.), with input from service providers and other folks involved in ending youth homelessness in America. 

Not only does it include topics for research, but also includes research values and tips for engaging young people in research, both as participants and as co-researchers.

The purpose of this national research agenda on LGBTQ+ youth homelessness is to ensure our movement is backed by the data we need in order to create real and lasting change. It is our hope that this document will enable researchers across sectors to investigate the topics and questions within, in collaboration with one another and alongside LGBTQ+ young people.
