End LGBT Youth Homelessness

Approximately 40% of youth experiencing homelessness identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT), yet LGBT young people make up less than 7% of the general youth population. While identity-based family rejection is the most commonly cited reason, there are many factors that contribute to LGBT youth homelessness. Our goal is to ultimately reduce the disproportionate percentage from 40% to none.

In order to do that, we need to understand the issue and the ways in which we can all play a role in ending it. That's why we launched #40toNoneDay, a national day to raise public awareness about LGBT youth homelessness, and to provide supporters with simple ways to make a difference. This year we'll also be hosting a series of live conversations online!


  • We're almost to our #40toNoneDay goal!

    April 21, 2017
    Thanks to your support, we've surpassed 300 supporters for the #40toNoneDay Thunderclap! But we're not finished just yet.

    If each of us get just one friend or family member to join the #40toNoneDay Thunderclap, we'll pass our goal of 500.

    Here's a message you can send:

    Hey, got 30 seconds? Join the #40toNoneDay Thunderclap and help raise awareness about LGBT youth homelessness. I did it – and it's super easy! http://truecolorsfund.org/thunderclap
