Larry Dunivan & David Gibson Supporting LGBTQ Youth Experiencing Homelessness
It’s estimated that 40 percent of homeless youth are LGBTQ kids. This feels like an area where we can leverage our money to make a difference. Especially in a place that we love so much: the Twin Cities.

Homelessness happens when a young person comes out. But a homeless youth is probably not going to stand on the side of the road with a sign. They’re going to look like your son, daughter, niece or nephew.
Being gay and coming out has changed since I was growing up, but it’s still not easy. We know that LGBTQ teens are six times more likely to experience homelessness, and there are over 4,700 homeless youth in Minnesota on any given night.
