The Department of Health and Human Services through its Administration for Children & Families plans to spend almost $1 million on transitional living programs for homeless lesbian, gay, lesbian, transgender and/or questioning (LGBTQ) youth.
Each year in the United States, an estimated 1.6 million unaccompanied youth between the ages of 12 and 17 experience homelessness, which puts youth at a high risk for health, behavioral, and socioemotional problems compared to the general youth population, ACF explained in its grant announcement.
It is estimated that between 20 and 40 percent of all homeless youth identify as LGBTQ, the grant said. This is disproportionate to the estimated percentage of LGBTQ youth in the general population, which is between 4 and 10 percent. Youth that identify as LGBTQ are more likely to run away or be rejected by their family due to lack of acceptance of their sexual orientation or gender identity/expression, the grant said.

More likely to turn to prostitution to receive money from adult males...
That anti-family agenda of the Left is certainly expensive. Guess God had a better idea all along.
Lettuce, Guacamole, Beef Tacos with Queso?
Large Gruesome Bitch Trumps Quezequotel?
Larry George Barry Tom Quickly?
Just another way for teenaged brats to get their own apartment at taxpayer expense: “Hey teacher, I think I’m confused about my gender and my old man ain’t gonna like it!”
The best little gay whore house in the US.
And that’s just for the Lysol.

They ran away because they are still confused about sticking that sausage the wrong way on the grill...
Q, as in “Larry is just a little queer.”?
It’s all about the queers now!
When are they going to add P and Z?
How can anyone be “Questioning”? Aren’t they BORN one way or another?
Very few kids are kicked out of their homes for simply revealing their sexual predilection to their families, unless they are arrogant and refuse to comply with the rules that any responsible parent puts in place. They'll claim to have been "kicked out," but that is almost always a lie.
These are disturbed young people who come from disrupted families. Everyone involved needs some kind of professional help. The problem is the “helpers” tell the families that family breakdown and homosexual behavior are both okay.
Couldn’t they at least take the time to think of a few more letters to add to that ridiculous ‘acronym’?
How about: LGBTQBFRMCS
Let me guess, Bwany Fwank is going to be director for all these poor kids.
When they include Polygamy and Zebras
Someday they are going to run out of letters in the alphabet. There are only 26.
How about housing those poor souls who lost everything to Sandy and the tornadoes in Oklahoma???
Sandy’s victims are still living in tents and using those nasty Port-o-Potties!
I was on Classmates.com looking through a yearbook from 1963 and I laughed when I saw the word ‘gay’ used to describe the kids. Back then ‘Gay’ meant happy.
We need to take that word back.
