Family conflict is the primary cause of homelessness for all youth, LGBT or straight. Specifically, familial conflict over a youth’s sexual orientation or gender identity is a significant factor that leads to
homelessness or the need for out-of-home care. According to one
study, 50 percent of gay teens experienced a negative reaction from
their parents when they came out and 26 percent were kicked out of their homes.
