Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer+ (LGBTQ+) Children’s Health Snapshot [downloadable]

LGBTQ+ youth face disproportionate structural barriers as they navigate through life, whether it’s living in a stable home, or being accepted, safe and protected at school. The Children’s Partnership’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer+ (LGBTQ+) Children’s Health fact sheet illuminates the inequities that surround the lives of LGBTQ+ youth in California and impact their success and healthy development.LGBTQ+ youth face disproportionate structural barriers as they navigate through life, whether it’s living in a stable home, or being accepted, safe and protected at school. Over 75% of LGBTQ+ youth identify as Black, Indigenous, or People of Color (BIPOC), thus, any discussions about improving the lives of LGBTQ+ youth must also include dismantling structural racism that perpetuates the inequities highlighted in the fact sheet.

Download the fact sheet from The Children’s Partnership website.

The Children’s Partnership collected LGBTQ+ children’s data from various sources. View the original data and sources.
