Jessie Paege on LGBTQ+ Youth Homelessness

There are nearly 1.6 million homeless youth, and while only 10% identify as part of the LGBTQ+ community, they represent over 40% of unsheltered young people. In this episode of #AuthenticVoicesOfPride, actress and LGBTQ+ advocate Jessie Paege touches on causes, those most at risk, and places LGBTQ homeless or housing unstable youth can turn to for support.
