Homeless Youth Share Their Experiences and Stories
Come hear the real stories of youth who survive on the streets every day and get an opportunity to listen to their experiences and perspectives on being homeless. Learn about myths, facts, and what you can potentially do to assist with this growing social crisis.
The Cambridge GLBT Commission and Youth on Fire (YOF) are sponsoring a free evening event on the subject matter of youth homelessness. Youth members from YOF will share their personal experiences of homelessness and surviving on the streets as GLBTQ young adults. Carly Burton, Deputy Director of MassEquality and Chair of The Commonwealth of Massachusetts Special Commission on Unaccompanied Homeless Youth’s Working Group on Services for LGBTQ Youth, will also give an update on the statewide policy work around homeless youth issues.
The evening will include the premiere of “No Place Like Home,” a documentary short bringing the viewer from the safety of a daytime drop-in center for youth and into the streets. Daily survival means navigating through a harsh climate of abject judgment, hopelessness and unimaginable abuse. The event will conclude with a question and answer segment.

Research and Policy Symposium on LGBTQ Out-of-Home Youth
Please Join The Massachusetts Commission on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Questioning (LGBTQ) Youth & The Fenway Institute for a convening of researchers, service providers, policy makers, and advocates on the topic of LGBTQ youth in out-of-home settings.
LGBTQ youth who are homeless or in juvenile justice, foster care, or residential treatment settings face a unique set of challenges. We invite you to contribute to this discussion of existing knowledge surrounding LGBTQ youth in out-of-home settings and best practices, policy preventions, and areas for future research as we move forward on this critical issue.
