As the first citywide LGBTQ elected official in Los Angeles, the issue of homeless LGBTQ youth is very important to Controller Galperin. Out of the estimated 55,000 homeless people in Los Angeles County, an estimated 6,000 are LGBTQ youth. This population faces discrimination and barriers to employment and often, a lack of information on where to turn. My office collaborated with community leaders at the LA LGBT Youth Advocates Coalition (YAC) and the Los Angeles chapter of PFLAG to create this map of resources and organizations providing services to help homeless and LGBTQ youth in the city of Los Angeles.
