Queer Youth and Out of Home Placement

Went to this workshop. Discussed issues of LGBT youth in the foster care system and the challenges young people face in accessing these services. We discussed some of the case law precedent as well as some of the common issues young people face once in foster care. I didn’t learn a ton of new information, but I’m glad this workshop was offered because queer and trans youth homelessness and the connection to the foster care system is often overlooked as an important issue in the queer community.  #cc2010 #qnet
