People of color, queer people, women, and people with disabilities know that bigotry is deeply rooted in this country's DNA. Our differences have always been used as a weapon to divide us.

Yet today, we are experiencing vitriol, hate, and bigotry that is more open, more championed and - worst of all - more actively enforced by our government than we have experienced in decades.

Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago has released new assessments from their Voices of Youth Count research, finding that lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer youth are more than twice as likely to experience homelessness as their non-LGBTQ peers.

Among the findings:

• LGBTQ youth also experienced higher levels of adversity, including higher rates of assault and of exchanging sex for basic needs.

• Black LGBTQ youth, especially young men, had the highest rates of homelessness.
