We have known about the issue of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, queer, questioning, and two-Spirit (LGBTQ2) youth homelessness in Canada for over twenty years, but we have only recently started to have serious conversations about this problem nationally. This is an issue that has been neglected and left out of important dialogue on youth homelessness for far too long. Dr. I Alex Abramovich has been working in the area of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, and queer (LGBTQ) youth homelessness for almost 10 years. Alex is a nationally recognized leader in the area of LGBTQ youth homelessness and is one of few Canadian researchers studying the phenomenon of queer and trans youth homelessness.
