Ending the ‘Closet to Poverty Pipeline’ for LGBTQ Youth
By June 28, 2018|
Emerging Leader Fellow Kee Tobar commemorates Pride Month by calling attention to the ‘closet to poverty pipeline’ and the need for better supports for LGBTQ young people in a guest post for Generocity.
June is a festive month for many people, like me, who identity within the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) community.
It is a month of pride and celebration. However, it is also a month that illuminates what I call the “Closet to Poverty Pipeline” that engulfs many LGBTQ people, especially youth and young adults of color.
