Tell Toronto It's Time for an LGBT Youth Homeless Shelter

This petition had 433 supporters

Upwards of 40 percent of all youth who are homeless in the city of Toronto identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender. Yet, as has been noted by a local high school teacher running for political office, Toronto has no dedicated LGBT homeless shelter for youth, nor does it provide adequate services or programs for LGBT youth on the streets.

That's not good enough for a city billed as one of Canada's premiere LGBT destinations. Let's urge the city to focus on the problem of LGBT homelessness, particularly among youth, and start to focus on resources that can help LGBT youth navigate services that can help them get their lives back on track if they end up on the streets.
