Publication date: 
03/27/2015

LGBTQ foster youth are twice as likely to report poor treatment and more likely to live in group homes and to have more foster care placements. Approximately 1 in 5, or 1,400 foster youth in Los Angeles County, home to the nation’s largest population of foster youth, identify as LGBTQ. The finding is twice the estimated percentage of youth not in foster care who are LGBTQ. Generally, LGBTQ foster youth mirror the racial/ethnic demographic of all foster youth in Los Angeles County. The majority are people of color, over 86% are Latino, Black, or API.

This publication from Funders for LGBTQ Issues reflects on the progress made during the first 40 years of LGBTQ funding and to envision the opportunities for improving the lives of the entire LGBTQ community in the years ahead.
